Focus on ethics – a theme that was discussed and decided together in a previous meeting. Invited guest is Heather Davis. She is based in Montreal but is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for the Arts and Humanities at Pennsylvania State University, where she currently is researching the ethology of plastic and its links to petrocapitalism. She has written about the intersection of art, politics, ecological catastrophe, and community engagement for numerous art and academic publications and edited the books Art in the Anthropocene: Encounters Among Aesthetics, Politics, Environment and Epistemology (2015), and Desire/ Change: Contemporary Feminist Art in Canada (forthcoming).

Plats: Artisten och Akademin Valand
How do we formulate new knowledge and what does it mean in the context of artistic research? What role does experimentality play and how can a modus of critical openness be developed and nurtured? This symposium will focus on practices driven by curiosity and a desire to explore what is not already known, seen or experienced. Among the guests are Cheryl Akner-Koler, Eddie Prévost, Mark Klett, and Henrik Frisk.

The idea behind the fourth basic course is that the content should be formulated in close relation with the doctorial candidates. Our next workshop is therefore organized as a forum for discussion and planning of the themes and guest for the symposium in October, but also for the symposiums in 2017. We are truly looking forward to your participation!
