The seminar is about ethics in artistic research and artistic practice. It provides an introduction to basic research ethics and ethics in the arts, as well as methods for mapping ethical dimensions of artistic research. Various ethical challenges and potentials are discussed based on the research fellows’ projects.
Research fellows participating in the Norwegian Artistic Research School. Recommended time is second semester.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the seminar will be based on digital participation. An online start up-seminar with talks and presentations was offered on May 11. After that, the fellows worked on their own with a reflection task (submission deadline 12 June). The seminar will be concluded with group discussions and a summing up conversation on 7 September (10-16).

We ask you to develop and fashion a small project, related to your own work and to the ethical issue that you have highlighted, therefore trying to address a particular ethical question through your own practice. You are free to choose any artistic expression and format - for example a brief video, a few lines of poetry or phrases of music, a short video performance, or a photography of a piece of work. It is important that you provide a brief explanatory text, so that the relationship pf the nature of the ethical question to the artmaking that addresses it may be clear to those outside your work.
This small piece of work will be placed in a collective, private online exposition on the Research Catalogue, open only to the Ethic Seminar group.
Please send your material (or a link to your material) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 June at 10.00.
There is no minimum size (for example words) for your contribution. However, you need to submit a contribution to get the seminar participation approved.
The libraries are temporarily closed, but digital services are still available.
