The seminar explores artistic research through a theoretical and practical application of socially engaged art practices. The seminar is organized by Professor Bryndís Snæbjörnsdóttir who will also present a brief outline on her and Mark Wilson's recently completed research project Uncertainty in the City currently on show at the Storey Gallery Lancaster UK. Keynote speaker for this event is Julie Crawshaw.
Julie originally trained in Fine Art. She has a postgraduate in Development Studies, and is now undertaking a PhD in Planning and Landscape (University of Manchester) in order to articulate the role of art and the artist in regeneration. She is a Sustainable Consumption Institute Doctoral Scholar (UoM) and a current Fellow of Akademie Schloss Solitude (Stuttgart). Julie will talk about her recent ethnographic study of art practice (research) through the lens of urban regeneration (in the North of England). The presentation will consider the role of art practice within a multi-disciplinary team (of human and non human actors), in thinking about and realising 'projects' to support urban 'regeneration'.
The artists Elke Marhöfer (PhD student at Valand) and Annika Lundgren (Senior Lecturer at Valand) will also present their artistic research. Elke Marhöfer will talk about her research in P'ansori music, an ancient Korean epic-song-form. It will focus on the formalization of the past as an "invention of tradition", and how this is used in neo-liberal humanism to built a national identity. She will also present a film project, resulting from this research and that mirrors the power relations involved. Annika Lundgren will be presenting her recently finalized project The Stock Is Rising, which took place partly online and partly in Frankfurt as a part of the exhibitionPlaying The City 2, arranged by Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt.
The project stages an attempt to levitate the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, commemorating the late Abbie Hoffmans Pentagon levitation, and deals with how faith creates reality and with the aspect of irrationality within power structures as well as within resistance strategies. Food and refreshments will be served during the interval. Please enrol to Anna.Holgen@valand.gu.se at the latest 1st of November.
