In order to empower artists and make creative practice and research visible, the EU4ART alliance is establishing Artistic Research (AR) labs at all of its partner academies in Riga, Rome, Budapest, and Dresden. A new format was created online to tie everything together while the first lab events were taking place and graduate students continued to work on their AR projects.
Several graduate students have already had the opportunity to introduce their artistic research projects and discuss approaches, ideas, and outcomes with professors, professionals, and peers, beginning with the summer school in Montecompatri in September 2022. This is still going on today thanks to a regular online colloquium for postgraduate students from all of the Alliance Academies. Every four to six weeks, the partners alternately host Peers’n’differences as a new online format. It gives four students from each institution the chance to present their work, followed by a longer period of time for feedback and discussion from the teaching staff as well as from other graduates and interested students.
Two Peers’n’differences online colloquia were held by EU4ART_differences so far, and attendees learned about fascinating subjects our speakers are pursuing. Discovering garden hedges in nowhere, learning about metamaterial studies for circularity, awaking culture in forgotten places or experiencing wounded memory – Artistic Research is a process of unfold.
Upcoming events will be published through https://differences.eu4art.eu, interested readers can register as peer audience via the event calendar.
