Artistic research is relatively new in Sweden within the performing arts and choreography field. Its role and function for the artistic field and corresponding artistry is and has to be debated. What is needed for this kind of academic knowledge production to be of value for the art practices in question? What kind of possibilities or hindrances are there to be conscious about and to discuss with the aim to an furtherance of the artistic field? What kind of relation to and exchange with the art scene, its venues and performace context, are there and should be there? Shortly, what is there or not in artistic research, actual or as possibilities, for the art, its labour and scene?
This event follows on from provocations introduced at an event called ‘Talking Thinking Dancing’ (June 2017, Dance4, UK). This crucial continuation will place artists, researchers and the cultural sector in dialogue and includes participants from Sweden, Finland, UK and beyond. It coincides with a week-long international teaching/research exchange for Doctoral Candidates initiated by the Artistic Doctorates in Europe Project (ADiE).
This is an event by Weld in the frame of Researching (in/as) Motion, ADiE Stockholm Practice Week. Hosted by Stockholm University of the Arts at DOCH and Weld.
Thursday March 22 at 19.30-21.00.
Artistic Research-WHAT’S IN IT FOR THE ARTS? I
With focus on visions or non-visions for art making within artistic research and its effects.
What does or can artistic research mean for artistic practice and art making within dance and performance? With what kind of artistry-related contributions (or non-contributions) are there? For the individual artist involved in artistic research? For the collective and the art form as such? In what degree are there visions (or non-visions) for strengthening and enlarging performing practice embedded in institutionalized artistic research and its enactment? Which are the realistic expectations one can and should have when it comes to the question “what’s in it for the artist?”

Artistic Research- WHAT’S IN IT FOR THE ART? II
With focus of the impact of Artistic Research on the art scene.
What is the relation between the practice of institutionalized artistic research and corresponding art scene with its venues? With what kind of consequences (artistic, economic and art-polical) in terms of what kind of outputs, priorities and programmings on the art scene? In what degree are there mutual (or hierarchical) exchanges, cooperations and sharings between institutional artistic research and venues as platforms for artistic expositions and explorations? Which are the realistic expectations one can and should have when it comes to institutionalized artistic research and the question “what’s in it for the art scene?”
