Alliances and Commonalities. Conference on Artistic Research

22 - 24 October 2020
Stockholm University of the Arts

Alliances and Commonalities was first created to focus on the ways in which artistic research connects us as artists and researchers to each other and the wider world. Embracing the diverse formats in which research is shared was key to the format of the original gathering, and central to the curation of this year’s conference. However, the premise of Alliances and Commonalities and the inquiry into what connects us is challenged when our movement is restricted and most of us have experienced some degree of isolation and/or quarantine. New, urgent questions have emerged in relation to Alliances and Commonalities and how we gather such as:

How do the restrictions on our movement affect the way we perceive the world in relation to power, place, each other, and our own artistic freedoms?

How can we participate, engage, support, and challenge each other in this time of enforced distance?

How can we remain vulnerable to what we don’t know when we cannot be in the same room, cannot touch, and might have to wear masks to protect ourselves from the air we breathe?

How can we stimulate and safeguard our curiosity about each other and our own research when we are isolated?

And, importantly: What is important now?

Körper(lichkeit) in der Musik des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts

Tagung

5.-6. November 2020
Zentrum für Genderforschung, Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Graz

Das performative und konzeptuelle Potenzial des menschlichen Körpers rückte seit Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts zunehmend in den Fokus künstlerischer Auseinandersetzung, wo es sich, von ausführlicher ästhetischer und wissenschaftlicher Reflexion begleitet, heute als selbstverständliche Kategorie etabliert hat. Die Tagung „Körper(lichkeit) in der Musik des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts“ widmet sich kompositorischen und performativen Konzepten, in welchen der menschliche Körper nicht nur als Mittel zum Zweck der Klangerzeugung eingesetzt und als nebensächlich verstanden wird, sondern in welchen dessen Ausdrucks- und Bewegungsmöglichkeiten im Zentrum künstlerischer Überlegungen stehen. Um die Thematik von „Körper“ und „Körperlichkeit“ in der Musik möglichst umfangreich diskutieren zu können, werden Einreichungen aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen (Musikwissenschaft, Gender Studies, Theaterwissenschaft, Tanzwissenschaft, Disability Studies etc.) sowie interdisziplinäre Ansätze begrüßt. In der Überzeugung, dass dieses komplexe Themenfeld durch ein Miteinander von Theorie und Praxis um zusätzliche Facetten bereichert werden kann, sind zudem Beiträge aus dem Bereich der künstlerischen Forschung ausdrücklich erwünscht.

Falling Walls Remote 2020: The Breakthroughs of the Year

9 November 2020 | online

As much as the Covid-19 crisis restricts personal gatherings in 2020, it opens up a new opportunity for Falling Walls to overcome the limitations of a traditional conference through innovative, open and engaging digital formats (Never waste a crisis!). This year, we will shift from a series of meetings and one conference with a limited number of speakers and topics to a global showcase that gathers, celebrates and discusses a much broader set of the most recent breakthroughs in science and society – The Falling Walls Breakthroughs of the Year. We also want to contribute to the post-corona agenda through dedicated sessions. This year, we will not be taking all of your time for a couple of days, including travel, but rather share thrilling research for a few minutes per day over several weeks, with a global digital meeting on 9 November.

ELIA Biennial (Digital) Conference

17 - 21 November 2020 | Online
Host: Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK)

Our Biennial Conference is an unmissable event for the higher arts education sector, providing an opportunity for arts professionals and practitioners to come together, share knowledge and their experience, while staying connected. This year’s theme, “Expanding the Arts”, delves into how we can explore the limits of our doing and test the boundaries between different worlds, disciplines, and concepts. As a result, the concept of transdisciplinarity, which invites us to think and reflect across disciplines, will be central through the entire conference.

The pandemic has highlighted the importance of our theme. We can see with 2020 vision that connectivity between the arts, sciences and our world is crucial to rebuilding a more cohesive, sustainable and resilient future post-COVID. It has also given us an opportunity to expand the activities, audiences, and engagements that we can offer. We will be using a variety of digital tools to ensure that our guests can enjoy watching several presentations, participate in interactive sessions, and connect with each other in a natural way. Our programme is also one that encourages teachers and students to engage together throughout the conference.

VIS Open Call - Issue 6: Contagion

VIS - Nordic Journal for Artistic Research is a cooperation between Stockholm University of the Arts (SKH) and The Norwegian Artistic Research Programme, DIKU

In the wake of the global pandemic VIS #6 suggests focus on different aspects of contagion as a potent and multi-faceted concept, both literally and metaphorically. There are parallels and differences between the transmission of biological infection and the ways that artistic works and processes are shared, disseminated and spread – just as there are in distribution of knowledge, rumours and myths. In the arts it may manifest itself as inspiration, imitation, iteration, replication, mimetics, references, whispering games and in many more ways. How do we as artists infect each other? How is art and its associated ideas, aesthetics and forms transmitted – between artistic fields and between the arts as a whole and the receiver? Can art have any impact on the growing fear and protectionism between nations and regions? Are the forms within research for references and documentation a way of tracing patterns of artistic contagion?

Deadline 23 November 2020

Geschlechtervielfalt an Universitäten - Repräsentationen, Strategien und Handlungsmöglichkeiten

uniko Tagung

25. November 2020, 10:30 - 16:30

Vorstellungen von Geschlecht und Geschlechternormen prägen und strukturieren unser Denken und Handeln und ziehen sich durch Wissenschaft, Bildung und universitäre Strukturen. Mit der Erkenntnis des Verfassungsgerichtshofs (VfGH) zum Personenstandsgesetz („3. Geschlecht“) gibt es nun eine rechtliche Grundlage, die auch Universitäten verpflichtet diese Entscheidung umzusetzen. Welche Chancen, Auswirkungen und Perspektiven gehen damit für Universitäten einher? Wie kann Ausschlüssen und Benachteiligungen von trans, inter* und nicht-binären Personen aktiv entgegengewirkt werden?

Ziel der Tagung ist es, Handlungsmöglichkeiten für Universitäten und Universitätsangehörige aufzuzeigen, institutionelle Zwischenräume ausfindig zu machen und zur Vernetzung untereinander anzuregen. In moderierten Arbeitsgruppen zu den Themen Recht, Lehre & Forschung, Ressourcen & Infrastruktur, Kommunikation sowie Allianzenbildung werden Strategien und Erfahrungen aus der Praxis diskutiert und Empfehlungen erarbeitet, die in einer Abschlussdiskussion zusammengeführt werden.

Eine Veranstaltung der Task Force Gender & Diversity der österreichischen Universitätenkonferenz in Kooperation mit der Stabstelle Gleichstellung, Gender Studies und Diversität der mdw – Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien.

Practices of Phenomenological and Artistic Research" (Special Issue)

Journal of Phenomenology & Practice. Call for Contributions

This special issue will explore existing and possible connections between two different sets of practices: phenomenological research practice and artistic research practice. On the one hand, both sets of practices share a basic aspect: they approach their object of research as phenomena, that is, through their phenomenal presences. On the other hand, these sets of practice are configured by different forms of action developed in different media — among many others, written or oral language, drawing, architectural design, film, photography, sound or body movement. On this twofold basis, we are inviting submissions that address the following questions and demonstrate them in action: How do the commonalities between practices and methods of artistic and phenomenological research manifest? How can phenomenological research be accomplished in artistic media and by artistic means? How can artistic research extend the scope of phenomenology as research practice? In turn, how can phenomenology contribute to further develop artistic research practices? 

Deadlines:
Expressions of Interest / Content Inquiries: 1 December 2020
Submission: 1 February 2021

Fragility of Sounds | Festival Conference 2020

8 - 9 May 2020 POSTPONED!

new Date: 14 - 16 January 2021
University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz

"On the fragility of sounds" is an artistic research project funded by the FWF Austrian Science Fund (PEEK Project AR537). It is designed to explore terrains of composition and contemporary music theatre as they are interwoven with feminist practice. The project research expands from the intersection of listening, composing, and feminism. We ask: Can music theatre be conceived with "Another Ear" rather than from the perspective of the "Male Gaze"? We aim to understand how the process of composing is affected by (feminist) listening.

"Fragility of Sounds" is a multi-/interdisciplinary festival-conference and invites proposals from researchers and artistic researchers from any discipline whose work relates to this topic.

Adel im Vormärz.

Interdisziplinäre Tagung

11. - 13 März 2021
Literaturarchiv Mersch

Das Literaturarchiv in Mersch gemeinsam mit der Universität Stuttgart widmet in Kooperation mit der Forum Vormärz Forschung seine nächste Jahrestagung (11.-13.März 2021) dem Adel im 19. Jahrhundert, speziell dem Adel im Vormärz. Auch wenn das 19. Jahrhundert als das bürgerliche Zeitalter gilt, stammen doch bedeutende Autoren und Autorinnen aus dem Adel und damit einer sozialen Formation, die – so die Ausgangsthese der Tagung – zunehmend auch das Schreiben dazu nutzte, um politisch Stellung zu beziehen und/oder politische Statusverluste als Künstler zu kompensieren. 
Um dieses bislang in der germanistischen Forschung nur wenig erschlossene Untersuchungsgebiet zu beleuchten, sind Beiträge willkommen, die sich einem einzelnen Autor/einer einzelnen Autorin oder mehreren vergleichend widmen. Zu fragen wäre, ob und inwiefern die adlige Herkunft bei der Selbstpositionierung als Schriftsteller/in eine Rolle spielt. Ebenso begrüßt werden Beiträge zum Adel in der Literaturgeschichtsschreibung sowie dem Adel aus historischer Perspektive. Auch Beiträge aus dem Bereich der Musik-, Kunst- und Theaterwissenschaften sind willkommen. Einzelne Vorträge können auch gern das lange 19. Jahrhundert betrachten, grundsätzlich sollte der Fokus aber auf der Zeit des Vormärz liegen. Nachdem die Darstellung adliger Figuren in der Literatur bereits ausführlich in der Forschung diskutiert worden ist, wollen wir in dieser Tagung Adel im Vormärz neue Wege beschreiten.

Performance Philosophy Problems: How Does Performance Philospohy Collaborate?

9 - 12 June 2021
University of the Arts Helsinki

Our times have generated problems, the scope, depth, complexity and ubiquity of which are surpassing traditional procedures for solving them. As the problems we face change in nature so too must our ways of dealing with them. Global problems require new modes of collaboration, transversal combinations and inclusiveness, enabling all kinds of agents from different fields to unite their experiences and efforts. At the same time, existing organisations are compelled to rethink their reasons for existence, their values and ways of functioning. Performance Philosophy is not immune to this challenge.

The 6th Performance Philosophy biennial asks: what kinds of problems does working in the field of performance philosophy lead us to encounter and to articulate, and what tools does it provide to deal with them? The conference invites its participants – artists, philosophers, scholars, artist-researchers and performance philosophers, regardless of any particular genre, school or discipline – to articulate the range of performance philosophy problems, whose treatment calls for dialogue and collaboration between philosophy and the performing arts.

Performance Philosophy Problems welcomes two types of proposals:

  • individual & panel proposals
  • PPP Key Groups proposals

The Call for Participation for both types will be opened on 1 September 2020.

IMPAR - Online Journal for Artistic Research

ÍMPAR  - Online Journal for Artistic Research is a peer-reviewed journal published twice a year by the IMPAR group of researchers at the University of Aveiro’s branch of INET-md. ÍMPAR is an open access journal that aims to promote, disseminate and discuss performance as artistic research in order to consistently increase the knowledge in this area, with a special focus on the intersections between critical and material thinking, aspects, remix practices and aesthetic appreciation. In this sense, the articles published are relevant to the advancement of the field of artistic research, and to further strengthen the inextricable link between artistic production and research. While the focus of the journal evokes a wide range of topics (such as creativity in performance; experimental, theoretical and philosophical approaches; improvisatory practices, etc.) all topics related to artistic research will be considered. In order to enhance and effectively support the understanding of their argument, authors are encouraged to include audio-visual elements in their manuscripts.
