ARTikulationen interweaves in-depth artistic research presentations, a festival character (intermezzi-performances), and a mini-symposium – this year on matters of intersubjectivity in artistic research. The mini-symposium combines keynotes by composer, sound artist, and musician Miya Masaoka, and by composer Juliana Hodkinson, with a panel discussion Self and Other in Artistic Collaborations organised in collaboration with ORF musikprotokoll. Located at the Theater im Palais (TiP) of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (KUG), ARTikulationen is co-funded by the State of Styria - Dep. 12 Economy, Tourism, Science and Research. It is directed by Deniz Peters, co-directed and produced by Hanns Holger Rutz, and organised by the Doctoral School for Artistic Research (KWDS).

Over the course of 3 ½ days, you can hear, see, and discuss artistic research presentations from fields ranging from current acoustic, electroacoustic, and computer composition, historically informed and contemporary performance, to social sculpture by doctoral candidates Adela Liculescu, Elina Akselrud, Almog Segal, Raphael Fusco, Helēna Sorokina, Jakob Stillmark, Daniele Pozzi, and Janhavi Dhamankar, plus two Rigorosa (viva voce presentations) by Boris Kuschnir and Márcio Steuernagel. The festival character appears not only through presentations in the form of examples from practice, but also in intermezzi (short live and filmed research performances) by doctoral candidates Lorenzo Orsengio, Samira Spiegel, Hugo Vasco Reis, Daniele Pozzi, Janhavi Dhamankar, Zsófia Faragó, Ilil Land-Boss, Jakob Stillmark, and Elina Akselrud, and in a performance by Marko Ciciliani.
