VIS – Nordic Journal for Artistic Research

Release for VIS Issue 1

We are happy to announce that VIS # 1 is here. The theme is Risk and we have ten contributions in the issue:

Geir Harald Samuelsen with Tracing gravity
Joanna Sperryn Jones with The Risk of Breaking
Edvard Haraldsen Valberg with Violent sound
Kaisu Koski with On whose side are you? Artistic-researcher positionally in a global public health challenge
Sepideh Karami with Black Lungs
Christina Stadlbauer with Melliferopolis – collaborating with uncontrollable, flying, stinging insects
Livia Daza-Paris with (Not so) Casual Conversations: Experiments in Attunement as Method in Investigative Art Practice
Michelle Teran with A few Notes on Getting Lost (Once again)
Verdensteatret with Discovery and naming
Jenny Sunesson with The lost and found project

In selecting Risk as the focus for its Issue No. 1, VIS is tapping into a subject area that is not only significant but also topical. Moreover, the response to its call for contributions has yielded expositions in which the art and the research not only embody risk but actually foreground it as the primary focus of their attention. Harnessing risk as the springboard to artistic action implies precisely the search for ‘a way of doing risk well’. The expositions assembled for this issue are very diverse but each shares this impulse and manifests its own vision of the forms that might be taken by an artful risk-taking. – Darla Crispin
