Vytautas Michelkevičius – AR Encounters with Trans-epistemic Communities Not (Only) A Symposium
"It seems that artistic research (AR) is running at very different speeds in different countries and in different epistemic communities. Let’s try to browse through the contemporary situation and identify a few urgencies and proposals on how to react to them. Let’s map a few outlines before the lecture.
Trans* first of all means that a community is transdisciplinary in a sense that it brings together various disciplines of art and research together with various non-academic practices like writing, walking, fortune-telling, etc.
Trans* stands also for transformative which means that AR can transform the community and its protocols.
Urgency No. 1: which generation of doctoral studies is your institution following or aspiring?
Urgency No. 2: how do artists-researchers present and/or transfer knowledge?
Urgency No. 3: do artists and their supervisors (self)colonize themselves with research vocabularies and protocols?
Urgency No. X: who (and why) is afraid of AR?"
The event was a keynote presentation 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.
