Don't fear research

Konstfack Research Week 2020 offers interdisciplinary perspectives that embrace topics surrounding physical, political and psychological aspects from the fields of art, craft, design, interior architecture and furniture design, visual communication and teacher education.
Participants will have access to a diverse range of futures that are possible within artistic research: from magic and meditation, to challenging canons and hierarchies, to the Anthropocene and how various lighting sources affect our lives.

The week is organized into four main areas: Views on Research, Parallel Sessions, Nodes and Closing Events. The week begins with Views on Research which presents insight from international guest speakers as well as the KTD doctoral programme and research conducted by colleagues from Konstfack. Parallel Sessions offer interactive workshops, discussions and performances within research, poetry and music. The week continues with Nodes which are presentations and workshops that explore specific topics in-depth. On the last day, the week concludes with Closing Events as well as the re-inauguration of Konstfack's Perception Studio.

Time and place: 27–31 January, starting at 9 am Monday 27th, in Svarta Havet at Konstfack.
