campus arts



MIT presented an interesting conference a couple of weeks ago relating to artistic research and with interest to anyone thinking about archiving:

“On November 14 and 15, MIT will host Infinite Record: Archive, Memory, Performance, an international artistic research project led by Østfold University College/Norwegian Theatre Academy. The project is done in collaboration with York St. John University in U.K, Muthesius Kunsthochschule in Germany, and MIT, which was chosen to host the final installment of the series. This will be one of the most significant events for MIT’s arts community, as it will bring some of the most prominent international artists on campus and expose research in performance arts to the student population.”

The Royal Institute of Art/Kungl. Konsthögskolan in Stockholm announces:

The International Visiting Chair in Philosophy in the Context of Art

Professor Peter Osborne & Professor Catherine Malabou

About The International Visiting Chair

Professors Peter Osborne and Catherine Malabou will share the position. It is designed to encompass a range of annual projects based on the reflexive relocation of ongoing research in modern European philosophy into the context of postgraduate education at the Royal Institute of Art. The programme will involve research taking the form of, for example, an investigation of the current state of one or two concepts central to philosophical research that have a distinct but as yet unexplored relevance to art practices and discourses more generally. These concepts may be philosophical versions of concepts that have historically been a part of art discourse – such as form, image, and the interesting (Osborne) – or they may be concepts derived from the history of philosophy or current scientific practices, such as inscription and plasticity (Malabou). In each case, the research will intervene directly in the current philosophical debates about the concepts at stake and will reflect on the experience of presenting this research within the context of art education.

bookrelease: access to resources – an urban agenda

Tags: , ,

Where: Royal Institute of Art
When: November 27, 18:00 (press 17:00-18:00)


Editor Henrietta Palmer

“The urban environment is in a constant state of change, a constant state of ‘becoming’. Each period in history has had its specific driving forces for change and corresponding solutions for directing change towards the city imagined and desired at that time. But our current era differs dramatically from earlier epochs as it faces seemingly overwhelming forces like the depletion of fossil fuels and climate change with their unforeseen impacts on the urban. Looking beyond the crunch, Access to Resources brings together a multidisciplinary group of major thinkers and practitioners alongside Resources participants to offer scenarios and visions for a complex yet hopeful picture of an urban future in common.”

After 19.15: Bar, DJ Lap-See Lam + Jin Mustafa

Higher seminar: Somatic Archiving

Professor Susan Kozel, School of Art and Culture/K3, Malmö University

This seminar will be based on AffeXity, one of the artistic research strands of the larger Living Archives research project at Malmö University. With AffeXity a group of artists and designers (from dance, music, photography, computer science and interaction design) used augmented reality browsers (AR) running on mobile devices to create choreographies of affect in urban spaces using archival material and live performance. This seminar will open up both our practical artistic methodologies and the conceptual or theoretical questions we posed with the research. Improvisation and its relation to affect, somatic materialism, and performative re-enactment through media and memories will be discussed.

Call for abstracts

In the current measurement- and indicator-driven knowledge culture, research in architecture, art and several disciplines within humanities and social sciences may succumb to economic or scientific models, or be separated from important contexts of invention, risking to reduce research largely to standardized reproduction. Responding to the current proliferation of evaluation systems and the dominant culture of measurement that comes with it, the Transvaluation international symposium, May 21-22 2015, searches for alternative, cooperative environments of knowledge, of creation and invention, of ‘making and thinking’, and ways to trans- and re-value research cultures from within.

The ambition is a high quality event with top level keynote speeches, small format seminars and collective forum discussions, with the intent to start a broad debate addressing fundamental strategic research questions across disciplinary borders, and to instigate possibilities for change.

The symposium will focus two major themes, Poetics and Politics of Value, referring to the (re-)making of values, both in artistic and architectural practice and in human scientific research, and their related political and systemic aspects. These themes are examined through two conceptual lenses: Worlding (shaping the world, transforming matter) and U-topos (space for speculative thinking and making).

We now invite researchers, doctoral students and practitioners to submit abstracts for discussion at the symposium. Abstracts will be peer reviewed and, if selected, developed into short papers.

For specific questions send email to conference mail address.
