Practise Practice – collaboration with Skånes konstförening
16 January–17 February, 2018
Opening hours will vary
For more than a decade, "artistic research" as a concept has been a buzzword in the art world. Doctoral programs have been created and several international conferences and seminars have been conducted to map the terminology and the different positions that artists can take in relation to research-based practice.
In the New Year, Skånes konstförening will launch a collaboration with the Malmö Art Academy. During the academic year 2017–2018, fifteen master students examine the concept of artistic research as part of the course Practise Practice, initiated by Maj Hasager and Matts Leiderstam. The students work with different projects based on their own artistic practice, while at the same time, they critically investigate "artistic knowledge" and "artistic research" in a wider sense.
In January the course moves its activities to Skånes konstförening for a month. With the move, “artistic knowledge” and “thinking through the visual” will be centered in space – the rooms will be used to test different practices. The activities will slowly become more public and invitations to different presentations and events will be announced online as they are developed.
