The research project: In Situ-Action: Resonance, Improvisation and Variation of Public Space at the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design invites participation in the international artistic research conference Re(s)on Art.
The conference is planned in collaboration with and coordinated as the second of three international events in 2014
- FASE, Sound Art Festival in Berlin June 11-13. Coordinator: Raquel RReivera
- Re(s)on-Art, in Stockholm Sept. 9-12. Coordinators: Ricardo Atienza, Monica Sand.
- International Congress on Sonic and Audivisual Spaces, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, December 2-5. Coordinator: José Luis Carles.
The aim of the conference Re(son)-Art is to explore public daily situations and to encourage daily urban awareness by collective actions, described as “the art of resonating with/in/through the city”. This means that the exploration will take the form of careful interventions, based in the participants’ own research and artistic practise.
How are spatial transformations played out, how does it sound, what rhythms does it reinforce? What kind of different voices, expressions and collective actions are supported by contemporary architecture and planning? Where do we find interesting thought-provoking social and cultural manifestations?
We welcome groups of artists/researchers/architects/planners to contribute by sending a short description of an action that can be collectively performed during the conference in Stockholm. Theplanned action should be developed and performed in situ, during the conference, by the participants under guidance of the proponents. In this collective setting a wide range of methods, theories and tools will contribute to the (mis)understanding of the city.
