22 February: Art-Knowledge #1

Writing Worlds: Debate about Creative Writing in Research

 

KNAW & ARIAS, in collaboration with the UvA Art History department

What could scholars and scientists learn from different forms of writing, such as poetry, prose and science fiction narratives? And what can artists gain from entering the community of academic writers? In contrast to the UK and the US, Dutch BA students gain little experience in creative writing. Even in debates on Artistic Research, Creative Writing has long been ignored. And it is only now that hybrid forms of writing gain attention. This evening, four artists, writers and scholars will help towards producing new ways in writing both in the academic world and in art.

With: Maria Fusco (writer, lecturer), Tine Melzer (artist, writer), Miriam Rasch (writer, scholar) and Maria Barnas (artist, writer).

Moderators: Christa-Maria Lerm-Hayes (University of Amsterdam) & Diederik Oostdijk (Vrije Universiteit)

22 February, 19.00 (doors open), 19.30 (start), Literair Theater Perdu, Kloveniersburgwal 86. This evening is English spoken. (Entrance is free, please sign up by sending an email to congresbureau@knaw.nl)

 

Four evenings on Art-Knowledge

What can the sciences learn from the arts? And vice versa, what can the arts learn from academia? The KNAW and ARIAS offer a series of four evenings, during which artists and researchers will show, perform and lecture about the way art-research operates in the interface of art and academia. From new ways of writing, to new concepts of wellbeing, experimental forms for researching big climate questions and experiments in education.

 

Thursday 22 February: Writing Worlds (Perdu)

Thursday 29 March: Art, Culture, Health (KNAW)

Thursday 19 April: Art, Culture, Ecology (Perdu)

Thursday 31 May: Art & Education (Perdu)

28 November: ARIAS info-afternoon on PhDs in the arts

On 28 November, ARIAS is hosting a meeting on the topic of PhDs in the arts and the possibilities of pursuing a doctorate degree with a special artistic research or design research interest within the network of the VU, UvA, HvA, AHK and Rietveld. After a general presentation by Jeroen Boomgaard and Sher Doruff and time for questions (16.00 – 17.00), interested researchers are invited to sign-up for 15 minute individual meetings (17.00 – 18.00), in which they can explain their PhD research idea and can have a dialogue with the attending mentors about what form would be fitting for their research plans and about possibilities for embedding the research within the network of ARIAS. Please sign up for a timeslot by emailing flora.lysen@ariasnl.nl. Starting 18.00, there will be soup and drinks before the start of the monthly art-science evening Café Chercher (18.00 – 19.30).

Location: VOX-POP, Binnengasthuisstraat 9,  16.00 – 18.00.

16.00 – 17.00 General presentation and time for questions

18 October: meeting research cluster ‘city as a site of research’/public space
19 October: meeting research cluster ‘art, culture, health’

ARIAS start-of-semester borrel, hosted by Cafe Chercher
26 September 2017, 17.00 -19.30
location: Vox-Pop Amsterdam, Binnengasthuisstraat 9
The evenings of Café Chercher consist of work in progress presented by artists, performers, and researchers. These projects typically exist between the realms of art and science. We believe in the relevance of research in art and in the relevance of art in research. Join us an evening with room for doubt and discussion in an informal atmosphere.

This evening, Café Chercher is organised in collaboration with ARIAS, the Amsterdam Research Institute of the Arts and Sciences.

Café Chercher is organized by students and alumni of the research master Artistic Research of the UvA, and it is hosted by VOX-POP. With support ARIAS and the Rietveld Research Group, entrance and soup are free.

More info on facebook and the Café Chercher website.

 

June 2017
In June 2017, three initial, informal research cluster meetings are scheduled for researchers from the five ARIAS partners. For more information on these themes, see ‘research clusters’.

ARIAS – city as a site of research
Tuesday 20 June, 11.00-13.00 UvA building BG2 room 0.12 (Turfdraagsterspad 15-17)

ARIAS – art, culture, health
Tuesday 27 June, 11.00-13.00 UvA building BG2 room 0.12 (Turfdraagsterspad 15-17)

ARIAS – art, research, education
Friday 30 June, 11.00 – 13.00 UvA universiteitstheater, room 1.01. (Nieuwe Doelenstraat 16-18)

Goal of the meetings is to exchange ideas about research-in-the-making, possibilities for future collaborations, directions in the field. More generally, the meeting serves as a way to enquire into how ARIAS can best serve ongoing and future research. At the meeting, member of the IXA/grant-support team (both for HBO and WO funding) will be present to inform about grant possibilities specifically related to this field of research.

24 March 2017

Op 24 maart organiseerde ARIAS de eerste netwerkmeeting in A LAB tussen de vijf samenwerkende partners van het platform, de Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA), de Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA), de Vrije Universiteit (VU), de Gerrit Rietveld Academie en de Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten (AHK). Denkende planten, emotie-netwerken, webcam-cinema en de voordelen van miscommunicatie: een reeks aan lopende kunst-wetenschap-onderzoeken kwam al aan bod tijdens deze eerste ontmoeting. Daarnaast werden er speerpunten voor de nabije toekomst besproken, waaronder een speed-date event voor de vijf partners, de vraag naar een aanspreekpunt voor kunst-wetenschap-subsidieaanvragen en het verkennen van de verschillende trajecten voor promoveren in de kunsten bij de aangesloten instellingen.

– Raoul Frese (VU) over art-science samenwerkingen tussen Biophysics of photosynthesis & kunstenaars van Synergetica
– Paula Albuquerque (Rietveld) over kunst-wetenschap-onderzoek naar webcams als cinematografisch medium.
– Mia Lerm Hayes (UvA) over de lange geschiedenis van kunst- (in het) onderwijs
– Sonja van der Valk (HvA) over nieuwe vormen van theaterkritiek
– Barbara Alves (Gerrit Rietveld Academie) over miscommunicatie als design strategie
– Hester Dibbets (AhK) over onderzoek naar emotie-netwerken
– Michiel van Iersel (AhK) over het ontwerpen van lege plekken in de stad
– Henri Snel (Gerrit Rietveld Academie) over architectuur voor Alzheimer patiënten

In drie thema-groepen hebben de verschillende deelnemers gedeelde interessegebieden besproken, nieuwe ambities geformuleerd en de rol besproken die ARIAS heeft in de realisatie van deze plannen. Belangrijke punten uit deze deelgroepen waren: de vraag naar een speed-date event waar onderzoekers elkaar kunnen ontmoeten, de rol van ARIAS als facilitator, het bieden van een speeltuin voor onderzoekers, de zichtbaarheid van kunst in relatie tot onderzoek, mogelijkheden tot online presentaties voor onderzoek en nieuwe vormen van publiceren, hulp bij het aanvragen van subsidies voor gezamenlijke projecten.
