The invention of forms of representation in the age of globalisation - Art and research residency (France)
The primary goal of this programme is to interrogate conventional modes of knowledge production that, by and large, marginalise the arts and their heuristic properties, in social science and humanities. The intention of the organisers (EHESS, IIAC, CNRS) is to stimulate a debate addressing all aspects of collaboration between artists and the academic world. They look for artistic and intellectual responses to the emerging and existing tensions at the age of globalisation. They particularly encourage submissions from the peripheral zones of globalisation. Deadline: 16 February 2017.
The competition assignment involves producing artistic proposals for the stations of Haga and Korsvägen. The aim of the project is to invite the artists to influence the design of the stations, so they can contribute to shape the architectural spaces and collaborate with the architects and constructors to make the environments unique. The art is meant to be an integral part of the overall design, and not be experienced as an addition to a previously finished structure. The artistic proposal should therefore be further developed into a detailed sketch in the next phase (planning), as the basis for the production of the artistic proposal. Deadline: 21 February 2017.
