bakhtin as praxis

The 15th International Bakhtin Conference
Bakhtin as Praxis: Academic Production, Artistic Practice, Political Activism


The 15th International Bakhtin conference to be held in Stockholm in 2014, seeks to provide answers to the questions: “Who, and What is Bakhtin today, twenty years after his first one hundred years?” and “How may we account for his transformation from text to theory to practical action – including artistic practice, activism and artistic research?”

We propose the Stockholm conference to become a forum for dialogue between the worlds of academia, literature, and art. Recently, Bakhtin’s ideas have been actively developed in artistic and curatorial research parallel to the academic discussion and work in creative writing and translation . A dialogue will enrich both of these directions in Bakhtin studies. To encourage artistic researchers, artists, translators and other practitioners to take part in discussions, and to announce an innovative orientation towards (artistic) practice, we have chosen venues that are new for Bakhtin conferences: The Royal Institute of Art and the Museum of Modern Art (Moderna museet) in Stockholm.

More information about the Conference will be available shortly on the conference homepage, www.bakhtinconference.com due to be launched in March 2013. Paper/panel proposals will be accepted and registered with the help of an automatic program.

July 26-30 2014, Stockholm

commoning the city

Tags: , ,

COMMONING THE CITY will explore the theory and practice of urban commons in the context of Sweden, and beyond. By bringing together professionals from the literature and social sciences, as well as hands-on practitioners and policy makers, the conference will investigate what role the commons can have in shaping the cities’ future. Which initiatives exist today in the Swedish context, and from what kind of urban landscape do they arise? In what ways is this situation related to global scenarios? What can we learn from recent events that shaped the digital revolution, and what historical grounds are there to fall back onto?

COMMONING THE CITY is organised by the participants of the post-master research programme In Search of Common Ground, Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, in collaboration with STEALTH.unlimited.
Registration: There will be limited number of places available, please reserve your seat as soon as possible by registering at press@kkh.se.

anna einarsson 25% seminar

Tags: , ,

Friday March 22 Anna Einarsson will give her 25 % seminar at Kungliga Musikhögskolan in Stockholm, sal A433.
Time: 13:00-15:00 ca
Opponent: Karin Johansson (Malmö Academy of Music, Lund University)

Drawing upon the original work Ps. Jag kommer snart hem!, the presentation discusses possible implications of combining singing voice and live electronics. Particular attention is given to interactive live electronics, where the singing voice affects the sounding material through the assistance of a computer. Technical development for Ps! was done in part in collaboration with the department of Speech, Music and Hearing at KTH. Measures taken in trying to obtain meaningful and tangible connections between the performer and the sound are discussed.

Experiences from Ps! has given rise to questions regarding the nature of the interactive relations.and possible diverging needs of composer, performer and listener when attending to interactive relations in music is discussed. Preliminary results suggest that listening itself seem altered on part of the performer and that different listening strategies may be called for when performing with electronics counter performing in a traditional western classical music setting. The view that is presented throughout this work is an embodied perceptual such.

The seminar will be held in english.

social choreography: workshop by bojana cvejić


The workshop will introduce “social choreography” as a concept on double axis. Social choreography offers a perspective of aesthetic continuum between everyday movement and dance. And, according to Andrew Hewitt (Social Choreography: Ideology as Performance in Dance and Everyday Movement, Duke, 2005), it redefines ideology’s mode of operation as “aesthetic” and “performative,”shifting focus from the mechanism of hailing subjects by way of power apparatuses to self-perpetuated embodiment. Social choreography features as a prominent form of ideology today as it demonstrates how social order can no longer be regarded to be reflected or mimed aesthetically by the arts, but how it is aesthetically produced and instilled choreographically.
