Emma Cocker is a writer-artist based in Sheffield and Associate Professor in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University. Operating under the title Not Yet There, Cocker's research focuses on the process of artistic exploration and the performing of ‘thinking-in-action’ emerging therein; on models of (art) practice and subjectivity that resist the pressure of a single, stable position by remaining wilfully unresolved. Her mode of working unfolds restlessly along the threshold between writing/art, including experimental, performative and collaborative approaches to producing texts parallel to and as art practice. Cocker's recent writing has been published in Failure, 2010; Stillness in a Mobile World, 2010; Drawing a Hypothesis: Figures of Thought, 2011; Hyperdrawing: Beyond the Lines of Contemporary Art, 2012; Reading/Feeling (Affect), 2013; On Not Knowing: How Artists Think, 2013; Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line, 2017; The Creative Critic: Writing as/about Practice, and as a solo collection entitled The Yes of the No, 2016.

Performance/Workshop Intensives: visual arts X dance

visual arts X dance
A workshop series programmed by

This year, ImPulsTanz – Vienna’s International Dance Festival 
 extends the dialogue between visual art and contemporary dance, through a unique workshop and research series – visual arts X dance – in close collaboration with the German-British artist Tino Sehgal. Spanning over the entire festival period (14 July – 14 August 2016), the visual arts X dance programme will bring together over fourty ‘pairs’ or ‘groups’ – mostly "blind dates" – of individuals from the field of visual arts working with contemporary dance, making for an intense exchange beyond established genre borders.
