Knowledge in the Arts (public)
In the spring of 2021, the International Center for Knowledge in the Arts launched the new series of talks and lectures: Knowledge in the Arts. The series focuses on themes and events in the field of Artistic Research and on current societal discussions that relate to the field. Most of the presentations are given by Danish and international artists, whose work is research-oriented, and by other relevant individuals in the area of knowledge in the arts. The presentations take place at the Center’s various institutions. They are streamed live and archived on the Center’s website (see previous Lectures in our media archive).

Symposium (public)
Every autumn, the Center holds a two-day symposium or another major event, each year focusing on a specific topic within the field of Artistic Research. The symposium brings together Danish and international experts in the field, and invites external practitioners, members of the Center and other interested parties to participate in the contemplation and exchange of artistic knowledge. This can involve the presentation of artistic material, lectures, workshops, conversations and other experimental formats. Whatever the case, the focus is on art and on initiating interdisciplinary exchange that enhances and develops a common understanding of the field. The symposiums take place both physically and online, and are documented in the media archive.

Artistic Research Forum (internal)
Artistic Research Forum is a monthly event featuring presentations and feedback on Artistic Research and research projects from the institutions of artistic education. The purpose is to create an interdisciplinary and inter-institutional forum for constructive discussions and the enhancement of Artistic Research projects. Each forum features two presentations from different institutions, followed by introductory questions and comments from a respondent. Conversation is informal and takes place in a non-confrontational way. The priority is knowledge sharing. Write to us if you are interested in taking part.

The Center plans and runs workshops that reflect common development within the field. Workshops can zoom in on some of the challenges artists may face during their processes. This might involve such questions as ‘How do you articulate artistic and practice-based development activity?’ or ‘How to make artistic methodology transparent and clear, while retaining openness in the artistic process?’
