In the ARTikulationen 2021 edition, there were six doctoral research presentations: Rigorosa (viva voce presentations) by Artemi Gioti, Lula Romero and Emiliano Sampaio, plus mid-study presentations by Patrick Gusset, Lorelei Dowling and Feliz Anne Macahis. For the mini-symposium related to this year’s topical frame – Artistic Research Journeys – we collaborated with the contemporary music festival musikprotokoll in two discussion panels on Nomadic Crossings Between Art and Research, with Natasha Barrett (Oslo), Isabel Mundry (HMT München/ZHdK), Svetlana Maraš (Hochschule für Musik FHNW Basel), and Marko Ciciliani (KUG). Margaret Schedel (Stony Brook University), Martin Iddon (University of Leeds), and Simon Emmerson (De Montfort University) gave further talks. And the festival character appeared not only through presentations in the form of examples from practice, but also in three intermezzi with contributions by doctoral candidates Jakob Stillmark, Elina Akselrud, Márcio Steuernagel, Daniele Pozzi, Agnė Dūkšaitė, Ilil Land-Boss, and Almog Segal, who contributed live and filmed performances.
We repeated the previous year’s successful combination of local and virtual presence (bidirectional hybrid onsite-online), adding live-streamed Rigorosa this year. Like the previous year also, the mid-study presentations were followed by feedback sessions with the full doctoral committees. As always, this was a discursive event with ample time for questions and discussions. The official opening was on Thursday, 7 Oct, 10:30am; closing session was on Saturday, 9 Oct, 2:30 pm.
Live events took place at Theater im Palais, Leonhardstraße 19, 8010 Graz.
