Involving artists of different nationalities and ages (Ivan Argote, Zachary Formwalt, Goldin+Senneby, Gianna Motti, Mona Vatamanu & Florin Tudor) The Forfeiture of Money gives an overview of works focusing on the shifting of evaluation criteria as well as the lability of money representations. Following the financial crisis that have recently shaken the world, the general public has indeed realised that money’s value is entirely artificial, built through some financial gurus, masters in this esoteric science. That principle has nothing new – the world is left stunned by the power held by this tiny handful of bankers and traders. Dematerialised, and now circulating in real time, money has broken away from its physical nature (currency), to become a pure abstract value responding to increasingly obscure causal effects. The exhibition opens Thursday 01 March 6-9pm at D+ T project in Brussels.

The Orpheus Academy 2012, with the title ‘Experimentation versus Interpretation’ takes place March 26-28 2012 in Ghent, Belgium and will challenge the concept of ‘interpretation’ in the field of music performance, and investigate musical ‘experimentation’ as an alternative or encapsulating path. Such a challenge involves the concept of ‘work’ and has implications in the fields of ‘notation’, ‘hermeneutics’, editorial concepts (such as the ‘Urtext’), as well as with the broader relationship with the past. During three days, internationally acclaimed guest lecturers will meet professional musicians, music theorists, musicologists and artist-researchers from all over the world. The academy is open to professional music theorists, musicologists, students in music theory or musicology, musicians, composers etc from all countries. Application is possible until March 1, 2012.

The peer-reviewed Journal of Research Practice has a special issue (volume 7/issue 1/ 2011) on artistic research, called “On Reflecting and Making in Artistic Research Practice” . The call for contributions to this special issue was framed so as to focus on artistic research practice, drawing attention to the interaction between reflecting and making in this practice.The special issue (index to be found here) consists of five articles, one of them being editorial and three of them appear under the category ‘provocative idea’.
Last year the German art magazine Texte Zur Kunst also had a special issue (June 2011/20 Jahrgang/ Heft 82)) on artistic research, in German and English, more particularly focusing on the ambivalence between empowerment and instrumentalization caused by or reflected in the concept of artistic research (index to be found here).
The latest issue of the Swedish journal Ord & Bild (5:2011) also has artistic research as it’s theme, with a particular emphasis on artistic research in literature and it’s relationship to the humanities (editorial in Swedish to be found here).
