the a4 sheet

Tags: , ,

When: April 2 – September 14
Where: KB, the Royal library, Stockholm

It is being used every day but we rarely notice it. What we see are the notes, letters, calculations, bills to be paid and things to remember.

In the artistic research project The A4 sheet, Emma Kihl has investigated different aspects of the sheet such as its format, surface and history. The result is a manuscript, a film and a collection borrowed from the German institute for standardisation will be showed in different contexts of the activities of KB. The research project is financed by VR, the Swedish research council and has been carried out at the Royal Institute of Art.

higher artistic seminar: lecture by Joe Kelleher at DOCH

Tags: ,

Studio G, April  9, 15.00

You Promised Me Ten Thousand People

The lecture considers a number of outdoor “unplugged” performances – performances that lend a theatrical frame to the movement rhetorics of social gathering – in relation to questions of performative intimacy and spectatorial distance. Distance is examined in relation to structures of report from far away, or with respect to the “prospect” of landscape architecture. Intimacy is examined with regard to structures of hospitality and recent theory on ecological interdependence. The “unnatural horizons” of seventeenth century landscape and theatrical architecture inform an argument on the place of “nature” in the imaginary of the performances discussed.
Joe Kelleher is Professor of Theatre and Performance and Head of Department for Drama, Theatre and Performance at Roehampton University London. He is co-author with Claudia and Romeo Castellucci, Chiara Giudi and Nicholas Ridout of The Theatre of Societas Raffaello Sanzio (Routledge 2007), and author of Theatre & Politics (Palgrave Macmillan 2009). His articles have appeared in journals such as Performance Research, Maska, Frakcija, and Theatre (Yale). Of his various essays in edited collections one of the most recent is in Intimacy Across Visceral and Digital Performance, ed. Maria Chatzichristodoulou and Rachel Zerihan (Palgrave Macmillan 2012).

public viva voce at DOCH: John-Paul Zaccarini

Tags: ,

Welcome to the first public viva voce in the field of artistic research at DOCH, April 13th 2013, 10 am

John-Paul Zaccarini will be the first of our PhD Candidates in artistic research to present his dissertation, entitled Circoanalysis: Circus, Therapy and Psychoanalysis, for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy.

John-Paul Zaccarini is a Choreographer, Stage Director, Dancer and Circus Artist from London with many years of artistic experience. He has been a Visiting Professor at DOCH 2007-2009. The project takes its starting point in John-Paul Zaccarini’s artistic work, and places this within a wider perspective through interviews and dialogue with other circus artists. The  central focus of  the project is the artist as a subject, and through psychoanalytical theory the project proposes tools for the artistic and pedagogical development of the circus arts.

The opponent will be Dr. Helen Stoddart from the University of Glasgow, author of Rings of Desire: Circus History and Representation (2000)

John-Paul Zaccarini’s research has been conducted at DOCH in collaboration with the Department for Musicology and Performance Studies, at Stockholm University.

commoning the city

Tags: ,

If we look beyond the state and private property driven developments, which have dominated the urban landscape through Europe during the last fifty years, we encounter a rich tradition of cities and communities formed on the principles of the commons. Having been out of the picture for quite a while, the commons is regaining momentum in the international debate on and around spatial and social justice, the use of natural resources, and digital cultures. Both through practice and exploration, the concept of commons enters the contemporary city.

Commoning the city is an exploratory journey into the field of urban commons. We would like to invite you to join the ongoing investigation of what urban commons is at present, how it translates to Stockholm in particular, and what its potentials are for the future of cities around the world.

For program, please see CommoningTheCity-Brochure_19_mars_2013.pdf

new journal for practice studies in music

Tags: ,

Despite the growing interest in musical practices and artistic knowledge, we lack arenas for the discussion of practices in their own right. This is why we now launch Music + Practice: www.musicandpractice.org

Music + Practice is a peer-reviewed online journal (Open Access) dedicated to practice studies in music. It features articles and presentations written by academics and practitioners, and has readers and authors from all over the world. Beside its main editorial area, the study of musical practices, the journal will also engage artistic research and performance studies.
