Art of Research Conference VII: Authorship and Responsibility
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:
- The planet. Human and non-human relationships
- Singular/collective authorship and individual/joint responsibility
- Inclusiveness, co-existence and the related participatory and empowering practices
