PAPER

Visuality, Intersectionality, Performativity: conceptual exploration through collaboration is a paper that explores the notion of visuality through the mise en scène of theatrical/text-based performance – or conversely, will work with text-based performance through notions of critical visuality.  The research takes an intersectional feminist approach, considering possible convergences of performative and visual ”acts” in the practice of conceptualizing and directing performance text.
Presented by: Kristina Hagström-Ståhl

VIDEO AND PRESENTAION

Exploring historical and cultural impact through film practices and the role of film grammars in artistic research will showcase studies from different global regions to offer observations and pose some theoretical and conceptual issues that emerge from research and artistic practice in film. One of the central concerns in the research is with film grammar(s) and the way modes in film (visual structure) can produce critical observation, critique and analysis that is exclusive of written exegesis.
Presented by: Jyoti Mistry

WORKSHOPS

The ABCs of AR/RC/ABR/PBR/PaR/PLR/ART is a workshop in which participants will reflect on artistic methodologies through an animated group discussion format called “conceptual speed dating.” The workshop will introduce terminology in artistic methodologies geared specifically toward conference attendees. Participants will develop rules according to their practice (or understanding of artistic methodologies) to engage in “conceptual speed dating” which involves conversing with a partner about the rules they articulated individually.
Presented by: Emilie St.Hilaire

Cross-Sectorial Figuration is a research project experimenting with what will happen if one applies acting/theatre practises and structures (i.e. figuration) to academic work and vice versa. A shared departure point has been a feminist perspective on research as well artistic practises.
Presented by: Carolina Frände and Dr. Bodil Formark

PERFORMANCES

A lot of moving parts and Moving~Thinking are two solos performed together, in dialogue.  Either one after the other, or perhaps in a duet that brings the two performers into a double conversation: one conversation on the level between dance-thought and language-thought, and another conversation on the level between two dancing-talking thinkers. 
Presented by: Eleanor Bauer and Gabriel Schenker

Music in Disorder: Counterplay, Complexity and Collective Improvisation is a research project that investigates the potential for conceptual experimentation to enrich collective improvisation in music; and how process-oriented forms of conceptualization can be used to augment the force of artistic experience to affect other modes of thought and action. The concept of disorder is central to the project, and the research experiments with how techniques for disordering are artistically related to power dynamics, complexity, difference, and resistance to apparatuses of capture.
Presented by: Klas Nevrin, Anna Lindal (violinist), Katt Hernandez (violinist/composer) and Ricard Österstam (drummer).

Ghostcubes is a research project based on origami and folding techniques.  The resulting objects are three dimensional wood cubes which can move and change shape to resemble a school of fish, a flock of birds or architectural structures. The workshop will be an opportunity to experiment with Ghost Cubes and hear about their development.
Presented by: Erik Åberg


At the end of day one there will be two separate but simultaneous panels, one with the participants and presenters of the Art, Technology, Materiality strand and the other of the Bodily and Concept and Composition. The panel will be an open conversation with those who participated in the days events.

Day One and Day Two: Individual Profile area panel discussions 
Day Three: Open Space Technology and final conference conversation.
