call: Ecologies of Practice
RUUKKU #14 "Ecologies of Practice" invites individual artist-researchers and research groups to ponder and share their ways of addressing the idiosyncratic environments of artistic research. This implies taking situational and historical responsibilities into account as well as striving for viable interconnections between a multitude of contemporaneous practices. At stake is a shift from disciplinary and territorial framings to more permeable, entangled and terrestrial modes of thinking, that is, towards articulation of research ecologies in a world that is forced to think of its ends. Therefore, we certainly need new coordinates, another distribution of metaphors and sensitivities, as well as novel fictions and imaginaries in order to address the ecologies of the present in a compelling way and to restate speculations about future directions of art and research.
Minding Music :||: Making Sound
How does music ‘work’? How to think about it?
Have you always wanted to know how music ‘works’? And never been satisfied by standard approaches, like becoming really good at making music or at philosophy? Then consider this summer course, as it interconnects making music and thinking about music. During the first two weeks of August 2019, we will dedicate ourselves to music masterclasses with the inspiring professors, as well as to workshops on 21st century ideas about music and art with ditto thinkers. The course is open to both artistic and academic students / phd’s / professionals, i.e. artists and academics in the widest sense. For more about the project click here.
