VIS issue 5 has been released


Today, 15 March, we've released the fifth issue of VIS – Nordic Journal for Artistic Research. The journal, published since 2018 by Stockholm University of the Arts together with Norwegian agency Diku, uses complex and often large-scale expositions to convey insights and knowledge from artistic research.

The theme of the new issue, with a title taken from a Röyksopp and Björk track, is “One more time, let’s do it again!”, and the subject matter this time deals largely with repetition.

“Issue 5 questions what artistic practices engaging with repetitions and reiterations may lead to in artistic research”, writes editor of the issue Trond Lossius in his introduction. “The seven expositions in this issue offer multiple and rich perspectives on how ‘doing it again’ can contribute to artistic practice, expression and meaning-production.”

From sound journaling and performing with trees to the reproductive labour of dusting carpets, the expositions in this issue range over a wide field of different areas. How are stories we tell of architecture changed by being rehearsed over and over? What can be revealed about the relationship between man and nature by re-drawing classic nature documentaries? How have group composition practices been transformed by having to work in Zoom meetings?
