The Art Text - an international research conference

News: Oct 08, 2009

On October 9th, the conference The Art Text. Writing In and Through the Arts will take place at the University of Gothenburg. The conference, where 50 international specialists in the field will meet, focuses on the forms of writing occuring in the intersection of art and research. New genres seem to take shape today, separate from criticism, art history, musicology or comparative literature.

The conference will address the text as research documentation and analysis, as an analytical tool for artistic development, but also new forms of essay writing based in diverse artistic practices, experiences and ”poetics”.

The aim of the conference is to enable researchers and artists to learn from each other, to discuss concrete textual practices occuring in connection with artistic research and to identify interesting examples where text meets image, music, design etc.

The conference is arranged jointly by the journal ArtMonitor ( a research journal published by the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Perfroming Arts - University of Gothenburg) and The Mahkuzine of the Utrecht School of Art.
