Woburn Square

The Slade School of Fine Art, UCL is pleased to announce Against Delivery. This two-day research event is produced under the auspices of the European Artistic Research Network (EARN) and the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP).

Against Delivery is hosted by the Slade School of Fine Art’s doctoral programme, with participating researchers from University of the Arts Helsinki, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, LUCA School of Arts, University of Leeds, Kings College London and The UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, as well as invited participants including Oreet Ashery, Kristen Kreider, Warren Neidich and Martha Rosler. Against Delivery will take place at the Slade Research Centre, Woburn Square in central London on November 12–13, 2015. The event is open to staff and students from UCL, LAHP and EARN.

The event aims to break down the presenter-audience relation by encouraging active participation and creative presentation formats. Against Delivery reflects the search for modes of practice-based research, which seek to generate alternative formats of exchange. The first day, Against Delivery: “Researching Practice,” will consider what practice-based research means, both for researchers and for their audience. The second day, Against Delivery: “Imag(in)ing Change,” addresses how ethical considerations inform and impact practice-based research. Against Delivery aims to provoke discussion around practice-based research, taking the form of art, performance, workshops, music and installation, among others, foregrounding questions such as:

–How can inherited notions of “research” and “knowledge”—and habitual modes of “delivery”—be re-thought or recovered through practice-based research?
–Instead of talking about research, how can research be embodied through the material processes of—and moments of encounter with—practice-based research?
–How might considerations of practice-based research complicate and challenge our understanding of the artwork as a finite outcome?
–What are the ethical implications of such practices?
