Panel discussion

“The Ethics of Vulnerability and Artistic Research” Maziar Raein

‘There was truth and there was untruth, and if you clung to the truth even against the whole world, you were not mad.’

George Orwell

Any ethical framework must take account of the vulnerability of the human condition. This is significant in all creative endeavours – especially in artistic practice and the teaching ofit

– since the very act of creating something and putting it out into the world is an expression of vulnerability. Looking at artistic research through the lens of vulnerability allows us to explore and discuss issues that may offer new insights.

The panel aims to discuss

  • The act of creativity and its accompanying vulnerabilities moving in the private & public spheres
  • The vulnerability of artistic research as a process that is at the interstices of artistic practice andacademia
  • Individual and institutional vulnerability and how we can understand and negotiate between these issue
  • The philosophies and ideologies of vulnerability and how they relate to artistic research practice

This discussion by the participants is followed by an open discussion with the attending audience. The participants have all, in various ways experienced, worked with and researched the theme of vulnerability in their work.

Work Group

Objective Enactive
This online lecture-demonstration unfolds the term ´Poetic Materiality´ within the context of designing and choreographing with Somatic Costumes. Through critiquing and applying the somatic practice of Skinner Releasing Technique, the poetics of philosopher Gaston Bachelard and the materiality of anthropologist Tim Ingold, this talk begins to map poetic and material agencies between bodies-costumes within the design-performance encounter.

Artist Talk

Objective Enactive

This talk will focus on the first outcome of Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, a tripartite site-specific, where I am pursuing a speculative exploration of the ecology of the city, between the urban and the biological, unfolding its layers and materiality of time. The talk will end in a conversation between fellow researchers and artists in the collaborative project Urban Ecologies, where Glitsch(ening) Ci(rculari)ty, is generated from.

Presentation

Polyvocal Tongue
The presentation will focus on relational ethics and polyvocality in performative text. It will also explore the use of plural languages in a play, looking at how a polylingual praxis can open up new aesthetic potential in playwrighting and in artistic research in general.

Conversation

TRANSPOSITIONS— JAR, Mette Edvardsen and modular diaries

At the start, the idea for an artistic research conversation with Mette Edvardsen did not spring out of the topics shortlisted for the conference—hospitality, vulnerability and care—but a book that she had co-edited, and dropped in my shelf.
