About this seminar

Assuming that in artistic research we may encounter local and limited knowledges, it is difficult to speculate – in general – what its audience might be and what this audience may, actually, experience. It is not enough to simply believe that a host of negotiations have to be entered into, which will eventually be settled; rather, it may well be that the various identities that appear to meet during these negotiations are not necessarily stable and that, perhaps, something or somebody will have become that thing or body only through such a meeting. If this is the case, where is the knowledge and where is it not? And, what relations are implied?
