Transformations ’22 – artistic research in times of change

This year’s symposium in artistic research addresses artistic research’s inate ability to shape living conditions.

Questions about the environment and climate are occupying an ever-larger place in artistic research, often through multi-disciplinary collaborations. Such collaborations often reflect a need to investigate alternative ways of life, now and in the future. They also bear witness of the important place that artistic research occupies in such investigations.

The symposium Transformations wishes to open up a dialogue about the role of artistic research in societal transition. How can we develop fruitful collaborations, methods and theories to address the challenges that the future is setting for us? How can we investigate, express and shape the future using artistic means?

The contributions and presentations of Transformations represent a multi-faceted knowledge about the environmental crisis, that takes the complexity of the is-sue into account. Moreover, it offers new perspectives on the role of aesthetic practices from a societal and political point of view. Exploring the relationships between humans and their surroundings, between materials and forms, between aesthetic practices and theories, the symposium offers a meeting place for wide range of researchers, individuals as well as groups.

The symposium is a collaboration between the Swedish Research Council and Luleå University of Technology and takes place at Vetenskapens Hus in Luleå between 17-18 November. The symposium will be conducted in both English and Scandinavian languages. Welcome!
