what follows is an ordinary situation



Tags: ,

What is an ordinary situation, and how does forgetting generate its own reflective state? Consisting of works on paper, with the exception of one photographic piece, the works at the exhibition What Follows is an Ordinary Situation, an Episode to Be Related and Forgotten at the Andreas Grimm Gallery in Münich, Germany by visual artist and PhD candidate Lisa Tan between 15 April 2011- 4 June 2011 propose an aesthetic of forgetting, stemming from transitions between language and image, different states of visibility, and the effects of time and nature.

producing, consuming, otherness



Tags: , ,

Thursday April 14 at 3-8 pm there is an artistic research seminar at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts in Gothenburg, hosted by the School of Film Directing at Viktoriagatan 13 and arranged by visual artist and PhD candidate Cecilia Parsberg. The practical work and questions of the participating artists will be the starting point of the seminar that has the title ”Producing, consuming, otherness”. To be a visitor in other (social) contexts could be seen as a form of tourism. We all have different images of the ”poor”, the ”whore”, of the old men on the bench at the square in the small city, of the royal family… Each process of creation must build its relation to such given images. Despite the fact that those images can be different there are also commonalities in our imagerial points of reference that the artist tries to use and see through in order to give her image, her perspective of another human being or a particular phenomenon, and in order to problematise both those norm-creating images and the visual language in itself. The seminar will be held in Swedish and master students at the School of Film Directing, Göran Dahlberg (editor of Glänta) and Klas Grinell (curator at the Museum of World Culture) will be the guests of the seminar. A more elaborated text on the background of the seminar can be found here (in Swedish).

An extensive documentation of the seminar can be found here (in Swedish)

(re)thinking improvisation



Tags: ,


Bringing together different traditions of musical improvisation, (Re)thinking Improvisation – an international research project organized by the Malmö Academy of Music, Lund University – now takes the initiative to organize an event November 28 – december 1 2011 during in which artists and scholars from various disciplines can get together in order to explore improvisation from a multidisciplinary and globalized perspective.
Centered around the concept of the lab as a venue for a review of artistic work and research as process, the ambition is to merge various kinds of knowledge production in the arts with various analytical modes of thinking. Each member of the research project will direct sessions to which a wide range of artists and scholars will be invited to contribute in the form of performances, art works, papers, lecture recitals and any other format that is pertinent to the argument one wants to make. These lab sessions are the core of the event. However, (Re)thinking Improvisation also hosts a series of public concerts in and around Malmö. There will be no parallel sessions so all participants can take part in all labs and, furthermore, each day invited artists/scholars will sum up and critically review the sessions that have taken place. Our ambition is to create a format for discussion and dissemination of artistic work and thinking about and through artistic work, while avoiding the all too common theory/practice dichotomies and allow for a creative and intellectually vital environment in which artistic and scholarly approaches to the topic of improvisation can be molded together.
The sessions will primarily take place in the facilities of the Inter Arts Center which affords flexible and technically well equipped venues for both music and visual arts. In addition, some of the sessions and many of the public concerts will be scheduled in other venues that are particularly suited for the content of the event.
Call for contributions: We welcome proposals that address improvisation from a wide range of perspectives and in various formats. We particularly welcome contributions in artistic form (also in artistic expressions other than music). Accepted contributions will be organized as parts of thematized sessions, establishing a critical dialogue. Deadline for proposals is May 15. The submissions will be peer-reviewed and a notification of acceptance will be announced no later than June 15. The description of the content and format of the presentation should be no more than 300 words and may also include audio and video material. The contributions may be of variable length but should not be more than 20 minutes. Please also indicate what kind of venue that might be suitable for the contribution and list any technical requirements. All accepted contributions will be published in the multimedia publication which will constitute the peer reviewed conference proceedings.
Please send proposals to stefan.ostersjo@mhm.lu.se and to henrik.frisk@mhm.lu.se

interference: art on the borders of interpretation



Tags:


Interferences is about encounters betwen artists and researchers in which the dialogue about the unfinished work, art in a stage of becoming, is central. The concept for the event, that takes place April 8-9 at the Inter Arts Center in Malmö emerged from a common curiosity found among artists in the fields of theatre and music. In recent years, an environment in which musicians, actors and directors have met in experimental explorations of new interfaces between sound art and performing arts have evolved in Malmö. In Gothenburg, an ongoing artistic research project is investigating interpretation of and through music. This event is a joint project exploring the different caleidoscopic facets of interpretation.The programme is a mix of concerts, performances, verbal and visual presentations, screenings and installations as well as conversations, the entrance is free and the full programme can be found here.
