ELIA Representative Board Expresses Dismay at Proposal to Appoint Tibor Navracsics as the EU Commissioner-designate for Culture, Education Youth and Citizenship

The European association of art schools joins high politics and takes position against proposed nominee Tibor Navracsics as the EU Commissioner-designate for Culture, Education Youth and Citizenship. “In his role as Minister of Justice (2010 – 2014)” says ELIA in its recent newsletter “and as Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister since June 2014 Tibor Navracsics and the controversial Fidesz party has been responsible for systematically building up a climate of hostility against ethnic minorities and people committed to freedom of artistic and intellectual expression in Hungary.

ELIA shares and supports the views expressed by Culture Action Europe.

research council announces artistic research grants



The Swedish Research council has anounced its research grants for 2015 and forward. This year there has been an exact equality between male and female applicants, and a majority of the granted applications were from female applicants. In the arts research funding, gender distribution among professors and wages have become much more equal than in other parts of the academic world. A total of 8 applications were granted support (16%).

Before having looked more closely at the projects granted support we may lean on Jan Kaila’s assurement that these projects show methodological awareness in subjects distributed in litterature, music, film, architecture and visual art. It is however worth noting that less than half of the projects are led by artistic researchers with an artistic research exam, and two of those that are have graduated in the old exam rooted in musicology with a performance focus. Three out of eight projects are given to artistic researcher at Gothenburg University.

Trans_forming academia_art_activism through intersectional trans_versal, trans_feminist politics of performativity

When: December 8-10, 2014
Where: Linköping University, Sweden

A Conference for PhD students, other scholars, artists, and activists, interested in conversations across borders between academia, art and activism.

Organized by the Swedish-International Gender Research School, InterGender.

The conference will gather academic scholars, PhD students in particular, artists and activists. Excitable writing encompasses the problems connected to academic knowledge production and writing. In academia, writing is often seen as an instrumental add-on, instead of understood as an integrated part of research and learning processes – a part which can sustain processes of disruption and resistance to inherent discrimination structures, powerful conventions and rituals, but which can also prolong exclusions and protect elitist practices.

In this conference, we will explore the exciting perspectives of writing:

  • writing as a passionate and playful way to produce transformative knowledge and poetic, world making truths,
  • writing as a way to sustain research and learning processes,
  • writing as way to break boundaries between the academic, the poetic and the political.
