Marisol de la Cadena – Not Only Not (Only) A Symposium on Artistic Research 2021
The title 'Not (Only) a Symposium on Artistic Research' is inspired by anthropologist Marisol de la Cadena's concept of “not only” which aims at a slowing down of knowing by opening up events, relations, practices and entities to a practice of “not knowing”: to acknowledge the limits of knowledge, translation and how things can be otherwise. Exploring what this could mean for artistic research, the symposium points to artistic practice and artistic research as part of ecologies of practice that always contain something more. This “more” will be unfolded through presentations of current and completed artistic research projects from the Danish higher art educations in dialogue with international guests. Themes during the two days include studies of other ecological worldviews, colonial knowledge cultures, materiality in the digital age, (re-)interpretation and re-imaginings of the artist role.
The presentation was pre-recorded and originally transmitted as part of the symposium opening on October 28.
Not Only: A Symposium on Artistic Research October 28-29 2021
On October 28th and 29th 2021, the International Center for Knowledge in the Arts organized its annual symposium which this time explored how artistic research promotes art as a practice-based form of knowledge, but not only that: it also promotes new artistic spaces for action within and beyond formally defined knowledge cultures. It took place in the Festsalen of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
