 exhibition & symposium
 November 2017
 In November 2017, Artistic Research in the North presents the exhibition Dwell, Act, Transform and the symposium Thought Things. Researchers from the University of Groningen and Minerva Art Academy, together with international guests like Tim Ingold, approach artistic research as a form of research that interacts with the social, material and academic environments in which it occurs. Based on their shared perspectives, researchers collaborate across the boundaries of disciplines and institutions, searching for new research methods and ways of working.

In this invitation you can find information on the exhibition Dwell, Act, Transform and on the symposium Thought Things. Artistic Research in the North is a coproduction of the Research Centre Art & Society (Minerva Art Academy, Hanze University of Applied Sciences) and the Department History of Art + Architecture (University of Groningen).
exhibition Dwell, Act, Transform, 2 till 17 November 2017

The exhibition Dwell, Act, Transform shows artistic research trajectories conducted by the research groups of Minerva Art Academy within the Bachelors, Masters and PhD. Artistic research is a relatively new form of research which uses the attitude and working methods of artists and designers during the research process.
The artistic research projects in the north as 'making' practices are always connected to the social and material environment in which the research is taking place. Anthropologist Tim Ingold calls this a position of dwell. From this position the transformative power of artistic action applies to both the maker and the environment. Growing into the world, the world grows in them.

Symposium Thought Things, 10 November 2017
An International symposium with keynote speaker Tim Ingold

The philosopher Hannah Arendt called works of art thought things; a term that captures the particular interaction between making and thinking, that art works need to come into being. In the wake of the material turn, the traditional opposition between making and thinking as belonging to the likewise opposed realms of practice and theory, has been called into question again by influential thinkers such as Tim Ingold. As part of the ensuing paradigm-shift, ethnographic approaches, practice-led research and artistic research are thriving, promising a closer interaction with thought things. Yet, there is still little agreement on how exactly these forms of research are to be carried out, what the results can or should look like, or how they can best be communicated. Formats of output, for instance, have changed little, as the division between written texts on the one hand and material art objects on the other remains rather stable. Unclear is also how such research impacts on more traditional forms of academic research in the humanities, as research environments like the university and the art academy are certainly more in touch, yet also guard their boundaries. Can these separations dissolve, or are dichotomies needed in order to stimulate exchange? Together with the exhibition Dwell, Act, Transform at Minerva Art Academy, that presents recent artistic research this symposium addresses how the relation between creative making and academic thinking can be approached and how academic researchers in the arts & humanities, as well as artists as researchers can gain from it.
