In the last KonstLAB of the year 2012, arranged in a collaboration between the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts at the University of Gothenburg and Unga Atalante there will be a talks by dancer and researcher Cecilia Roos from the University of Dance and Circus and actor and PhDcandidate Petra Fransson from the Theatre Academy in Malmö. Cecilia Roos will talk about the changes in understanding of a movement material that takes place in a dancer’s work with and creation of it, and about the kind of understanding that also takes place in the in-betweens of the dancer’s and onlooker’s understanding of those movements. Petra Fransson will talk about acting as a hermeneutic method, the appropriation and understanding of action in and through acting. The talks (in Swedish) will take place December 12 at 19 pm, moderated by Ole Lützow-Holm.
Monday December 12 there is a seminar on methods of writing in and through art and science between 15-17 pm at Konstfack (Svarta havet), where issues such as what it means to work between and beyond what is already framed by science in order to investigate the world in a new way, and the practice of writing as a way to transform and challenge the knowledge claims made by conventional academic writing will be raised. Maja Hagerman (innovative and acclaimed author of several books on history and archaelogy ) and Magnus Bärtås (visual artist, professor at Konstfack and cowriter of Alla monster måste dö: gruppresa till Nordkorea) will talk about notions of “popular science” and writing as part of an artistic research process.
