KuvA RESEARCH DAYS 9–11.12.2019
This year's KuvA Research Days lead us to ponder the preconditions and urgent questions of the human experience. How does artistic thinking meet the dead end of fossil capitalism? What kinds of actor networks should artistic research position itself in? What is the shape of arts discourse if the focus is shifted away from humans? What role do we give to the work and its materiality in experiencing art? Can experimentality offer tools for dealing with extreme phenomena and for building a sustainable future?
The publication I Experience as I Experiment – I Experiment as I Experience (2019) brings together thoughts on the origin of an artwork and on the need for making it. The book is available as a open access publication in the Uniarts Helsinki HELDA depository.
