1st a.pass Conference on the Art of Research
16. - 17. 09. 2011 - 11-19h - de Bottelarij, Brussels
a.pass welcomes you to join us in a 2-day public conference on the Art of Research.
a.pass is an artistic research environment based on self-organization and collaboration that provides an individualized framework for theoreticians and artists to work, think and experiment. After five years we decided to organize a conference in order to reflect upon the shifting notions of this 'artistic research' and to question the political implications of the discourses and practices we use(d).
When a.pass is performing a conference this does not simply imply a gathering to exchange knowledge on artistic research practices. In the course of three days we rather aim to create a frame in which research is put into practice and shared with the audience. In other words: we will organize a conference which provides different working situations, allowing an in-depth experience of research formats, relations and situations, and the specific 'knowledges' these produce.
We would like to invite you to join us at this gathering, and to contribute to the working and thinking process. Following the suggested attitude in our conference-title - Don’t Know! - we open up different lines of questioning for you to contribute to:
What is the specificity of the knowledge produced in the arts today? Can they still claim a political, or even subversive position in the politicized, aestheticized, techno-sized and mediatized knowledge production process? How do we create the appropriate, critical and creative formats for feedback and support for the (potentially very different) kinds of artistic research? How do we keep the framework for such researches open enough so as not to smother them in an over-protective embrace? And at the same time: how to stimulate the appearance of alternative forms of knowledge out of artist-driven formats of research?
