Doctoral seminar IN SITU - Open School on Situated Creative Practices

Lectures & artist talks

Monday 9th of May researchers from AP&SAlt_Shift* and Inter-Actions will get together to share (and create new?) knowledge in relation to their own (creative and research) practices, through a common lens on ‘situated creative practices’. The main goal of this day is twofold:

  1. To create a common space -and time- for inter and transdisciplinary collaborations between KU Leuven & LUCA researchers in art, design and architecture;
  2. To explore and test how this space can serve as a moment for sharing and creating knowledge, therefore putting in place a transdisciplinary pedagogical experiment.

The Open School will take place at Korenbeek, a temporary occupation in Molenbeek managed by Toestand.

The notion of Situated Creative Practices has a twofold connotation: on one side, it refers to the site and time sensitivity of the practices that we engage with and, on the other, the tools and tactics we use to critically position ourselves in relation to the contexts where we operate. The sessions will focus on sharing the work of the three research groups, as well as addressing the following questions:

  1. How do our practices (creative and/or research) relate to the politics of place and time?
  2. How do we critically position ourselves in relation to the places where we work? is this manifested in the ways we work or in the things we produce?
  3. Have I ever taken into consideration issues of race, class, sexuality, gender and ability in my practice? in which way?

If you would like to attend the doctoral seminar, please register here before May 6. If you have any questions, please contact dr. Pablo Calderon Salazar: pablo.calderon@luca-arts.be
