March 21/22, 2024, Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts
Your Own Spaces is the closing conference of the Research Project Moving in Every Direction at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
Artistic research does not yet prominently include the medium film as a practice and a set of methods in artistic research. Filmmaking has developed epistemological practices of its own, which do not align seamlessly with current notions of artistic research. Among these figure documentary and animated documentary with their truth claim, experimental films with their often media-specific questions and installative practices of filmmakers and artists, which update those questions in a spatial context. Especially in the context of documentary theory the discussions about the epistemological value of audiovisual representations of the «real» have been vivid in the last decades. The conference aims to introduce these discussions in the formation of practices linked to artistic research.
Your Own Spaces hosts eighteen researcher/filmmaker/artists who present their original, substantive and sometimes intuitive approaches to the epistemology of working with film. It provides space for discussions about the merits of multi-perspective representations of the real and opportunities for cognition through spatial settings. It will be accompanied by an exhibition of prototypes from the research group of Moving in Every Direction that represent research processes with moving images.
We invite interested scholars, artists, and filmmakers to the Lucerne School of Design, Film and Art to take part in this discussion (please register here). Welcome to Emmenbrücke!
