“Sound & Image”

Posted by Katrien on Tuesday January 29th 2013 at 15:21

„Sound & Image“ is a day devoted to lectures, debates and performances exploring sound in relation to visual art forms. In the first part of the day (11am – 4pm) doctoral students and artistic researchers present their research to a critical group of fellow doctoral students, supervisors and experts. This takes place in the context of SeminArt, a cross-association seminar aimed at doctoral researchers in the visual arts.

The second part of the day (4.30pm – 10pm) is open to a wider audience of artists, students, researchers and anyone interested in the topic of sound & image. The day concludes with a performance by the experimental tuba player and composer Robin Hayward, followed by the multidisciplinary improvisation performance „2 x 2“ (Peter Jacquemyn, Klaas Verpoest,  Sigrid Tanghe and Jan Pillaert). „Sound & Image“ is organised by LUCA – Faculty of the Arts in collaboration with SeminArt/HISK, Transmedia Impact Sessions and M – Museum Leuven. All lectures and debates are in English.

NIVA TO NENETS picnic-quiz

Posted by Rosanne on Thursday May 31st 2012 at 23:37

Vrijdag 8 Juni, Extrapool, Tweede Walstraat 5, 6511 LN Nijmegen, Nederland.

NIVA TO NENETS is een interactieve roadmovie waarvoor Rosanne van Klaveren in 2013 haar Lada Niva naar de Nenets in het noordwesten van Rusland zal rijden. Dit (semi-)nomadische rendierhoudersvolk worstelt met het voortbestaan van traditionele leefwijzen. De kunstenaar wil haar geliefde auto ter ondersteuning aan hen kado doen. Samen met haar publiek onderzoekt zij hoe paradoxaal ‘hulp brengen’ eigenlijk is en welke posities zij ten opzichte van de Nenets in kan nemen. Ieder standpunt is gekoppeld aan een bijpassend picknick-hapje en vormt een mogelijk antwoord op de quiz-vragen. De deelnemers kunnen ter plekke hun positie verdedigen in een geïmproviseerde filmstudio en zodoende een rol spelen in de NIVA TO NENETS roadmovie.

De ‘zaal’ gaat open om 20:30 uur en we starten om 21:00 uur. Extrapool vraagt 5 euro entree.

CFP: SupraSpace: On the Concept of Space and Place in Art and Visual Culture

Posted by Marjan on Friday December 16th 2011 at 20:26

SupraSpace: On the Concept of Space and Place in Art and Visual Culture
International Conference
Tel Aviv University, Art History Department

June 3 – 04, 2012
Deadline CFP: Jan 15, 2012

Keynote speaker: Prof. Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann, Department of Art and
Archaeology, Princeton University

Space has been subject to aesthetic, art-historical, philosophical,
anthropological, geographical and political investigations, each with
its idiosyncratic definitions. Space maintains a close relation with
illusionism, narrativity, and the performative qualities of art.  Space
is especially interconnected with time, making it impossible to
separate one from the other. In the current dynamic reality in which we
live, it is hard to remain confined to just one modality of spatial
thinking that will capture all of its complexity; yet this problem is
not limited to our contemporary globalized moment, but is also relevant
to different historical periods. Consequently, in order to engage
effectively with the problem of space, recent studies have demonstrated
multiple methods of conceptualization, while emphasizing the
dialectical relations and tensions between them.
Within the realms of art and culture, the discourse on space has often
engaged with problems of representation (artistic genres such
landscape, narrative space, chronotopos, interior/exterior, etc), or
with political issues relating to territorial conflicts and borders.
