Art Incubators 2020
Craftsmanship in the Ecology of Knowledge Production
Two-day workshop for researchers in art, art research, and artistic research
Venue: Sofia Future Farm, Ellen cabinet, Sofiankatu 4 C, Helsinki
For this edition of Art Incubation (Taidehautomo), we focus on the role and place of craftsmanship in research as knowledge production. The topic arises from the observation that craftsmanship is often a ‘given’ in the cultural discourse. We are interested in craftsmanship (a) in the context of research in the arts, as well as (b) within the dynamics of knowledge production. Questions may include (but are not limited to):
- How does craftsmanship participate in the varied stages of knowledge production including the research design, implementation, and dissemination?
- What is the liminal space between art and craft in the context of knowledge production?
- What kind of craftsmanship do we look for in different research fields?
