University of the Arts Helsinki's Academy of Fine Arts

Kuva Research Days 2018 in Helsinki

The Doctoral Programme in Fine Arts at the University of the Arts Helsinki’s Academy of Fine Arts arranges once again the Kuva Research Days in Helsinki 10–13 December 2018.

During the Research Days, everyone has an opportunity to participate in discussions about art and research together with Academy of Fine Arts Researchers and Doctoral Students as well as guests they have invited.

This time KuvA Research Days delves into the questions of imagination. Our thinking often starts with individual needs, goals and preferences. We nevertheless live and act in the world together. How can we cultivate empathy and togetherness? Can artistic research offer us means of transforming our mental landscape? How do we come from one to the other? Is unity a placeholder for multiplicity?

The venues for the KuvA Research Days are Monday–Wednesday 10–12.12.2018, Exhibition Laboratory gallery, Merimiehenkatu 36, Helsinki, and on Thursday 13.12.2018, Kone Chamber, Tehtaankatu 21 B 45, 5th Floor, Helsinki.
