In a theatrical space in Venice SARN invites colleagues and the public to work on stage during three days and discuss and investigate the notions and practices of work and collaboration in the field of artistic research. Related to the particular architectural typology of the theatre and its role as theoretical staging in ancient Greece, we want to reflect work in terms of theatrical and theoretical staging and sharing. With regard to artistic research, the assumption is that theory understood not as knowledge but as touching defines the modes of collaboration in artistic research. The work in Venice will function as a model for a restaging at the SARN Conference in Zurich from 8 to 9 December 2017.
