Art of Research Conference VII: Authorship and Responsibility

Over the past two decades, the Art of Research conferences have had a significant role in promoting continuous dialogue and fruitful convergence between art and design related research practices. The conferences have contributed to the development of rapidly growing and spreading contemporary discourse on artistic and practice-led research – acknowledging and engaging in multiple notions of research where diverse modes of creative practice are used as context for enquiry.
7th Art of Research Conference

The theme of the seventh Art of Research conference "Authorship and Responsibility" addresses the varied collaborative and individual working situations of researcher artists, designers and architects. The theme connects to questions of singular authorship, shared authorship, lost authorship, invisible or uncredited authorship, participatory conditions, co-creation, inclusion and exclusion—that is, with the potentiality of one's individual or shared praxis. These questions intertwine with the essential questions of power, control and responsibility, which accompany the acknowledgement that we inhabit this planet with other people, species and materials.

The conference seeks discussion on the potentiality of co-existence and its relationship to singular methods of working within artistic, arts-based, and practice-led research. We invite submissions to the conference that are original proposals on various forms of the arts that significantly contribute to praxis and research through art and design. This conference brings together researchers from different fields of arts, design and architecture, while also extending a warm welcome to related presentations coming from other fields. 

The theme of the conference can be addressed in three interrelated subthemes:

  1. The planet. Human and non-human relationships
  2. Singular/collective authorship and individual/joint responsibility
  3. Inclusiveness, co-existence and the related participatory and empowering practices
