The seminar is about sharing and documentation in artistic research. Based on the research fellows’ projects, different time-limited and permanent formats for presentation and documentation are discussed, as well as how they influence work methods, artistic results and reflections.
Research fellows participating in the Norwegian Artistic Research School. The recommended time is second semester.
Digital seminar with preparatory assignments, lectures, presentations in varied formats, plenary discussions and discussions in groups.
1) Read the literature on the mandatory reading list.
2) Create a plan with two parts, one for sharing and the other for documenting your process. Please make one document for each of the parts. The plan can be based on your current practice or it can be a speculative plan, for an ideal situation, a future development. Consider the customary strategies within your field, and whether you want to change them in some manner. Use no more than approximately 1 A4 for each part (500 words). If your plan is longer, share only a summary of it. You can include links to websites with images, sounds, etc. Please take care, however, that the main plan is understandable without them.
Plan for sharing your artistic research process:
Draft a strategy for sharing your process, rather than the final results. Which parts of your work do you want to share with others, with whom, when and where, how often, in what media, for what purpose?
(Add questions as needed.)
Plan for documenting your artistic research process:
Draft a strategy for documenting and recording your process, rather than the final results. Which parts of your work do you want to document and keep record of, with what media or tools, when and how detailed, to be shared or private, for what purpose? (Add questions as needed.)
Please prepare and send in this assignment to email@example.com no later than 25 January 2021 at 10:00.
You will present your work in small groups, which are formed based on these assignments.
The material you provide will nevertheless be shared with all participants.
