The Postresearch Condition Conference, Utrecht (January 26-30, 2021)

June 8th, 202011:30 pm @

After an omnipresent “Research Decade,” the concept of artistic research currently seems to be in need of a recharge. Emerging questions are: Should we talk about a postresearch situation and/or a postresearch condition? Could this be compared with how poststructuralism relates to structuralism as its philosophical comprehension and the elaboration of its consequences? And how could a postresearch condition address contemporary art practices?
Propositions and Interventions: Peter Osborne, Hito Steyerl, Vytautas Michelkevicius, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Amanda Beech, Terike Haapoja, and Irit Rogoff.
Working groups and seminars: Methodologies (Rethinking Artistic Research through the Concept of the Continuous Prototype), Curatorial Issues (Expo-Facto: Into the algorithm of exhibition), Sustainability (Re-visioning the work of art and the academic conference), Histories (Archiving Multiplicity of Histories in different geographical locations), and Evaluation (Discussing evaluation models, methods and criteria).

Venue /Virtual Host: BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Pauwstraat 13, Utrecht.

Conference organized in collaboration with BAK, basis voor Actuele Kunst, HKU University of the Arts Utrecht, and NWO (Dutch Research Council/Smart Culture Programme)

More details about the (offline and online) programme will be available in Autumn 2020.
