‘Not Only’ A Symposium on Artistic Research

International Center for Knowledge in the Arts warmly welcomes you to take part in our annual symposium which this year explores 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.

With the theme Not Only, we have been inspired by the anthropologist Marisol de la Cadena’s conceptual toolbox where a practice can both be very specific and at the same time form part of a diverse field of knowledge or ecologies of practice. Contrary to reductive definitions of art and knowledge, the symposium instead points to artistic practice and artistic research as complex quantities 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 invited 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 program will be updated on this webiste.
 

Mapping and Diagramming Artistic Research  w. Dr. Vytautas Michelkevicius (Vilnius Academy of Arts)

27.10, 14-17.00, Physical and on Zoom.
“No matter who you are – artist (including designer, architect, musician, filmmaker, performer, writer, etc.), researcher, curator, facilitator or every/body/thing together in one person, each of us has our own episteme(s) and rhetorics. Do they intersect and have a common ground? Artistic Research as a transdiscipline has the potential to blur boundaries of knowledge systems and disciplines. More over we are full of various types of knowing modes and knowledge forms but we are not always even aware of them. Let’s try to identify, reflect, speculate and layout our epistemes and knowings. All researchers can be artists and vice versa, cannot they?”
