semester meeting 23-25/9

Tags: ,

The up coming semester meeting is organized by PhD-students Marjan Kooroshina and Stefanie Malmgreen de Oliveira. The meeting is structured as an open, collective workshop around textile and dress with different focal points.

One part of the workshop explores the relationship between music and textile through techniques of knitting. Through the programming of a knitting machine, music compositions can direct the knitting patterns based on notes and movement. Another possibility for the exploration of textile and music is the creation of sound making textiles. By the use of, for example, conductive yarn, a connection to a lili-pad can be created, which can then be used to create sound and further to experiment with compositions of sound. This part is held by Jussi Mikkonen and Marjan Kooroshnia.

An other part aims to explore/question/rethink definitions of dress and dance and their relations to body, movement and space. Experimenting with different types of “garment” to find different ways of performing and wearing. This part is held by Ulrik Martin Larsen and Stefanie Malmgreen de Oliveira.

The meeting is held at the Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås.

“Since this year is my last as a PhD candidate I will make an attempt to summarize the process of these past 5 years of research. I will give an overview on larger questions, such as how the academic frame has influenced the artistic production, and move into details with practical examples. The attempt will be to both explain and apply the thinking and the doing of the project that for now carries the title From Model to Module.”

During Malin Arnell’s presentation we will interact with YES! Association’s/Föreningen JA!s latest work; Zyklische Gesellschaftsreise, which took place July 23 on the Berlin Ringbahn. It’s a collective travel where we engage in our desire to make sense of “today” through looking, moving, conversing, and reading aloud. Perhaps we can say that it is about the everyday choreography of and in the urban space.
This presentation will be participatory. Also see www.foreningenja.org

Afterwards both papers will be published together with reflections from a special guest auditor.

Just what is it that makes today so familiar, so uneasy? intends to establish an aesthetic, intellectual, and political position by bringing the public and those shaping contemporary art discourse closer to a heightened and sensitive understanding of the conditions that shape our consciousness and existence today.
