12–14 December 2022

This year KuvA Research Days engages with a multiplicity of artistic research contexts through a series of situations that suggest kaleidoscopic relations with each other. We work with entaglements and contrasts between exhibition and symposium, artistic process and teaching situation, city spaces of Helsinki and Johannesburg as well as the relations between critical thinking and play. Parts of the KuvA Research Days 2022 programme can be attended online.

Welcome to think together!

The onsite venue for the KuvA Research Days 2022 is the White Studio (Valkoinen studio), Uniarts Helsinki’s Sörnäinen campus, in the Academy of Fine Arts building Mylly (Sörnäisten rantatie 19, Helsinki).

The program on 12–13 December 2022 will also be streamed on the Uniarts Helsinki YouTube channel. The YouTube links will be published here on the KuvA Research Days webpage.

There also will be parallel program and exhibitions during the Days. More information on these events can be found here on the KuvA 2022 Research Days pages. 

Inviting South African guest speakers has been made possible through Uniarts Helsinki´s Academy of Fine Arts partnership with the Saastamoinen Foundation. Also, the research project "City as a space of rules and dreaming" (2021–2024) funded by Kone Foundation has contributed to the planning and realisation of parts of the programme.
