PhD Vitamin: Open lectures, consultations and workshop

test5_phdv

The registration to the PhD Vitamin consultations and workshop is open! (link below)

The second PhD Vitamin at the Estonian Academy of Arts will take place this year on June 15-17 via ZOOM. The event consists of public lectures, consultations and a workshop for drafting a doctoral thesis. The event will once again bring together experts in creative research with those interested in entering doctoral studies in art and design.

All interested parties are welcome to participate in public lectures by creative research experts June 15-16:

Tuesday, 15.06. 14:00-15:00 – Mick Wilson

Mick Wilson is an artist, educator, and researcher. He is currently Professor of Art and Director of Doctoral Studies at HDK-Valand Academy of Art & Design, University of Gothenburg. He has been actively involved in developing and promoting artistic research on the academic, institutional, and public levels. His current research deals with questions of art as public culture; political community with the dead; exhibition-making as inquiry; and the rhetorical dynamics of knowledge conflict and symbolic violence. His co-edited volumes include: How Institutions Think (2017) and The Curatorial Conundrum (2016), both MIT and with Paul O’Neill and Lucy Steeds, and SHARE Handbook for Artistic Research Education (2013), ELIA with Schelte van Ruiten. Wilson is currently involved in projects like PARSE On the Question of Exhibition (2020-2021), Open Up (2019-2023), and Public Art Research Report II (2020-2022).

In his lecture entitled “Meeting Friends and Parting Ways,” Mick Wilson will give a personal exploration of the potentials and tensions of the artistic research field based on his collaborative experience as an artist, writer, researcher, and organizer.

Tuesday, 15.06. 17:00-18:00 – Britta Benno

Britta Benno is a Tallinn-based artist who specializes in drawing and printmaking. She is interested in various hybrid techniques and materials that open up new perspectives. In recent years Benno has been working on a series depicting posthuman urban landscapes. Her conceptual keywords include memory, power, and loss of meaning (ruins), imagination (worlding), printmaker’s tools of thought (thinking in layers), and posthuman philosophy.

Since 2018 Benno is a doctoral student on the EKA art and design doctoral curriculum. Her practice-based research focuses on thinking in layers and imagining in layers inherent to her medium: posthuman landscapes in the field of extended drawing and printmaking. In her lecture, she will present her research, shed light on how it has evolved and changed during the studies, and how the academic and artistic practices work together.

Wednesday, 16.06. 16:00-17:30 – Thomas Markussen & Eva Knutz

Thomas Markussen is associate professor and co-founder of the Social Design Research Unit at the University of Southern Denmark. In his work, Markussen focuses on how design can be used as a political and critical aesthetic practice, notably in social design, design activism, and design fiction.

Eva Knutz is an artist and designer, an associate professor within practice-based design research, and co-founder of the Social Design Research Unit at the University of Southern Denmark. The group works on participatory design processes leading to social value for the individual and society at large, with particular attention to marginalized or vulnerable groups in society. Knutz has a developed number of prototypes (games) and research artifacts (probes, self-aid kits, tools) focusing on two large public sectors, healthcare, and criminal care.

Markussen’ and Knutz’ shared lecture is titled “Practice-based research in art and design – an introduction”.

Consultations and Workshop: June 16-17

In addition to the lectures, individual consultations take place within the framework of the PhD Vitamin on June 16. They offer the opportunity to talk about artistic work and ideas for a doctoral thesis with an expert of your choice. To register for a consultation, please provide your portfolio with the registration form (see below).

On June 17, the workshop about ideation and preparation for one’s PhD proposal with Thomas Markussen and Eva Knutz will take place. To take part in the workshop, please provide a 1-pager of your idea. Instructions can be found on the registration form.

To participate in the consultation or the workshop, register HERE. [Registration for consultations and the workshop is closed. Please join the open lectures instead: no registration is required for that.]

We encourage artists and designers, alumni, and graduates of the Estonian Academy of Arts and other universities working with creative research methods to register. Registration is open until 11.06.2021. The exact consultation times will be sent directly to the provided e-mail addresses. Be quick – the number of free spots for the consultations is limited!

The lectures and consultations will take place in digital environments.

If you have any questions, please contact madis.luik@artun.ee

PhD Vitamin was first initiated in 2020 by the Faculty of Fine Arts. In 2021, it is being organized as a collaboration between the faculties of fine art, design and the EKA doctoral school.

PhD Vitamin is supported by the European Regional Development Fund.

PhD Vitamin – Lectures and consultatsions for potential PhD candidates

PhD Vitamin is a first-time event at the Estonian Academy of Arts that consists of public lectures and individual consultations. Our goal is to bring together experts in artistic research with prospective PhD students with the intent of introducing the latter to the field of artistic research and to advise them in developing their own PhD research proposals.

1. Join the lectures: (please register beforehand)

Monday, 04.05. 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Liina Siib works mainly in photography, video and installation. The most prominent and recurring themes in Siib’s work include social spaces, marginalised groups and overlooked experiences. In her work Siib looks into how history gets written and the role of memory in shaping various groups in society, often using interviews, observation or archival materials as her method of working. (CCA)

Monday, 04.05. 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Dr. Varvara Guljajeva is an artist and researcher. Varvara holds a PhD from Estonian Academy of Arts, and M.Sc in digital media from University of Luebeck, and a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from IT Collage (Tallinn University of Technology). Her practice-based doctoral thesis “From interaction to postparticipation: the disappearing role of the active participant” analyses and contextualises passive audience interaction through the lens of post-participation.

Tuesday, 05.05. 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Dr. Michael Schwab is a London-based artist and artistic researcher who investigates postconceptual uses of technology in a variety of media including photography, drawing, printmaking, and installation art. He holds a M.A. in philosophy (Hamburg University) and a PhD in photography (Royal College of Art, London) that focuses on post-conceptual post-photography and artistic research methodology. He is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the Journal for Artistic Research (JAR).

Wednesday, 06.05. 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Dr. Chris Hales has exhibited a variety of interactive film installations dating back to ARTEC’95 in Japan via Future Cinema at ZKM in 2003 to the Glucksman Gallery in Cork in 2019. Part of his enquiry is the use of novel or unusual interface technology including facial emotion recognition and brain-computer interfaces.

2. Join the consultations: (please also register beforehand)

In addition to the lectures, individual consultations take place within the framework of the PhD Vitamin from 6th to 8th of May. They offer the opportunity to talk about your artistic work and ideas for a doctoral thesis with an expert of your choice.

In addition to the experts who will give lectures in the first half of the event, it is possible to register for a consultation with artist Kristina Norman.

Kristina Norman is a freelance artist whose interdisciplinary work is characterized by an interest in the relationship between identity, memory and public space. One of her most internationally known works is the intervention in public space at the 10th Manifesta Biennale in St. Petersburg, when she installed a 14-meter iron Christmas tree frame – which has become a symbol of Euromaidan – in front of the Winter Palace. The action linked the tragic events in Kiev to the repressed memory of demonstrations at the Palace Square at various times. Norman’s newer research-based creation experiments with performative expressions.

To participate in the consultations, register HERE.

We encourage artists, alumni and graduates of the Estonian Academy of Arts and other universities working with creative research methods to register. Registration is open until 03.05.2020. The exact consultation times will be sent directly to the provided e-mail addresses. Be quick – the number of free spots for the consultations is limited!

The lectures and consultations will take place in digital environments. The event is funded by the European Regional Development Fund
