Forensis: Architecture at the Threshold of Detectibility
A Lecture by Eyal Weizman, Professor of Spatial & Visual Cultures, and Director of the Centre for Research Architecture at Goldsmiths, University of London

In his lecture, Eyal Weizman will also present work undertaken with the Forensic Architecture teams in relation to urban and architectural destruction in Israel/Palestine, environmental violence in Guatemala and their research for the UN on drone warfare in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia. Forensic Architecture, an agency composed of artists, filmmakers and architectural researchers, uses architecture as sensor and an agent that can detect political force-fields and respond to them. Weizman will show how architectural methods and new sensing technologies could be used to expose the logic of violent conflict while raising a host of conceptual problems to do with the thresholds of vision and law.

The poetic utterance as circulation and (re)materialization
Place: Marseille
Credit: 1 ECTS

November 21-23 (20/11 travel day)

The workshop is constructed around a visit to cipM—centre international de poésie Marseille and it consists of an introduction, individual work, and presentations.

They will further introduce some different methods of transcription, copying and (re)materializations in contemporary poetry. In the afternoon, Éric Giraud, head librarian at cipM, will present cipM and the collection. Later in the afternoon we visit Éric Pesty, publisher at the poetry press Éric Pesty Éditeur; the visit takes place at the letterpress print shop l’Annexe where Pesty composes and prints poetry books and the poetry magazine K.O.S.H.K.O.N.O.N.G. The second day will be spent at the cipM library for individual exploration and for work on the basis of a task articulated by Beata Berggren and Martin Högström.

olivia plender: 25% seminar

Many Maids Make Much Noise

25% PhD seminar with Olivia Plender, Marina Vishmidt, Anna Colin and others, focussing on Olivia Plender’s PhD research project Society is a Workshop 17 October 2014 at 15:00

“As the title Society is a Workshop implies, my PhD research project relates in some way to the topic of work, and, more specifically, deals with competing educational models: education as a way of indoctrinating citizens into the work ethic versus education as a process of emancipation, in which art, or creativity and playfulness have a central role. The focus of the research being the methods of several social and artistic movements of the industrial era, questioning whether their practices still have the potential to interrupt normative institutional structures today within the conditions of post-fordism and the knowledge economy. The particular example that we will focus on in the seminar is an exhibition of art works by the political activist Sylvia Pankhurst – which I curated at Tate Britain, London in 2013, within the collaborative framework of the Emily Davidson Lodge. We will discuss this exhibition alongside other works and experiences that have formed a part of the process of undertaking the research, such as negotiating tradition and losing my voice.”

tacit or loud 28 nov – 3 dec 2014 (1 hp)


This course will adress artistic method and artistic knowledge production in a cross disciplinary manner. The participants will be encouraged to engage in the discussion concerning the locality of knowledge in artistic practice, primarily in the performing arts at the intersection between new currents in research on human cognition and new media; cross-disciplinary art is an emerging field. The course consists of at least three days of participation in the symposium Tacit or Loud: where is the knowledge in art? that takes place in Malmö 28 November 28 – 3 December 2014. It will present a series of installations and performances bringing choreography, theatre, music and fine arts together. Please contact Emma Kihl (emma@konstnarligaforskarskolan.se) for signing up or for further questions.
