Themselves” is the title of a shared investigation in “a network of practice-based research processes on phenomenabased and/or
phenomena-oriented research practices”. The core focus is to explore “new possibilities of mutual enhancement, refinement
and hybridization between specific artistic and phenomenological research practices.” But it seems that there is a “distance
of phenomenologists to artistic practices”. This Saturday morning session will take a look at contexts and how some understanding
of context helps to take care of the productivity of ”distance”.
At this very morning event we will contribute
another layer, in an open panel conversation involving Alex Arteaga, Gerald Bast, Alexander Damianisch, Cordula Daus, Nikolaus
Gansterer, Margarete Jahrmann, Ralo Mayer, Barbara Putz-Plecko, Charlotta Ruth, Katarina Šoškić. We will talk about institutions
and how they set and shape action via a particular scaling of focus and free flow. So we will question distance and relation
between theory and practice. It is the wish to relate and therefor investigate with institutional thinking, so join and provide
your points of view.
The investigation is organised inside the Cell format as a collaboration between the Uniarts
Helsinki and University of Applied Arts Vienna at the Research Pavilion #3 in Venice Spring and Summer 2019.
information: The Research Pavilion highlights the points of view of artistic research in the context of the world’s best-known
contemporary art event in spring and summer 2019. It is set up now for the third time. The Research Pavilion #3 is a meeting
place, a catalyst of emerging co-operations in the area of artistic research and a generator of new thinking: a battery of
research cells capable of recharging artistic research with new energy. It is an ongoing project created and hosted by Uniarts
Helsinki in cooperation with the Louise and Göran Ehrnrooth Foundation and together with the University of Applied Arts Vienna
with the following international partner institutions: Aalto University, Valand Academy of Arts at the University of Gothenburg
and Interlab Hongik University Seoul.
