Symposium with exhibition and performances from international artistic postgraduate programmes

Composition and computation, anthropology and filmmaking, archaeology and fashion design: nowadays, many artistic works give insights how art and research extend far beyond traditional modes of production and process. Participants of all featured institutions will come together to share ideas and ideals: how have we experienced the effects of recent developments and new approaches at the intersections between the arts and sciences? How can artistic and scientific practices correlate today? When do they interact, when do they collide?   In this three-day symposium taking place from 13th to 15th November, national and international study programmes discuss topics concerning artistic 3rd circle programmes.

The Graduate School invited at least one lecturer and one fellow of each programme to provide an intensive exchange about the following subjects:

1. Process and Result — Criteria for artistic research inside and outside academia

2. Artistic and Academic Articulation — Written or oral language practice

3. Evaluation and Feedback — Observing, analysing and sharing feedback within artistic practice and Research

4. Opening the Process — Artistic practice, research and its impact on Society

Programmes offered by the following universities and institutions participate:
Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Universität der Künste Berlin, Universität Bern & Hochschule der Künste Bern, Kunstuniversität Graz, Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle, Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg, HafenCity Universität Hamburg & Partner, Aalto-yliopisto, Helsinki, Muthesius Kunsthochschule Kiel, Goldsmiths, University of London, Konsthögskolan i Malmö, Concordia University, Montréal, Stockholms Konstnärliga Högskola, Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Akademin Valand, Göteborgs Universitet & Van Eyck, Maastricht

The results will be published in digital form and will be available on the Graduate School’s website.

The international symposium is a cooperation between the Graduate School within the Postgraduate Forum at Berlin University of the Arts and the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, co-funded by the Einstein Foundation Berlin.
