I was in Stockholm from 5 – 9 March, attending the conference Loitering with Intent: A Feast of Research and the Society of Artistic Research AGM. Loitering with Intent (5 – 7 March) brought together Stockholm University of the Arts and the Society for Artistic Research to explore formats for sharing knowledge that emerge from artistic research practices. The Loitering with Intent conference foregrounded performative modes of exposing practice as research, celebrating the fragile balance between sensory, situated and spoken forms of knowledge. Invited artists included: Henrik Agger, Louise Bjurholm, Magnus Bärtås, Nils Claesson, Florian Dombois, Kristina Hagström-Ståhl, Paul Landon, Brita Lemmens, Tero Nauha, Kirsi Nevanti, Poste Restante, Michael Schwab, Koen Vanmechelen, Magnus William Olsson, Rasmus Ölme.
This event has provided an impetus for me to finally start archiving some of my own research within the Society for Artistic Research online catalogue, a purpose built repository for international artistic research. To date, I have started ‘expositions’ for my Close Reading/Live Writing projects and also for the collaborative research undertaken with Open City. More to follow soon.
