Open Call: Proposals for Alliances & Commonalities 2020
ELIA member Stockholm University of the Arts
has issued an open call for expositions and proposals for the second Alliances and Commonalities conference on artistic research that will be held October 22–24, 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden.
Researchers from both specific and interdisciplinary fields, as well as those with practices that defy easy definition are welcome, as are projects in any stage of development. Experimental approaches to modes and formats of exposition are particularly encouraged .
There are four research profile areas at the Stockholm University of the Arts. The profile areas are designed to interrelate and interconnect, creating a dynamic and responsive research environment. We invite you to direct your proposal to the profile area that resonates most with your research at this moment in its development.
The profile areas are:
Concept and Composition
explores the myriad web of influences, inspirations, methods, and techniques that artists use in their artistic and creative processes.
Bodily and Vocal Practices
explores the techniques, methods and systems used in the articulation, interpretation and communication of creative ideas and visions through the use of body and voice.
Site, Event, Encounter
explores the interplay between art and society, considering the protean nature of participation in contemporary art practices/processes/events and the many and various contexts and conditions in which 21st Century artists work.
Art, Technology, Materiality
addresses the material and social conditions and networks occurring in, and engaged through, artistic practice.
The focus and format of the conference will emerge directly from the subjects, ideas, and topics present in the research of those selected to present. Alliances and Commonalities is a place, a group of people, and a possibility for artistic research to challenge and inspire us as both individuals and community.
The proposal should be 1600 words or less, it should briefly outline your proposal and also adress one or more of the four profile areas. Please note that both the proposal and the presentation should be in English. Lastly, please also provide a concise (150 words or less) biography of the participating artists/researchers.
The submission deadline is 2 November 2019
