Stockholm University of the Arts invites you to Alliances and Commonalities, its second bi-annual conference on Artistic Research. The conference will be held online on October 22, 23, and 24, 2020.

Alliances and Commonalities was first created to focus on the ways in which artistic research connects us as artists and researchers to each other and the wider world. Embracing the diverse formats in which research is shared was key to the format of the original gathering, and central to the curation of this year’s conference. However, the premise of Alliances and Commonalities and the inquiry into what connects us is challenged when our movement is restricted and most of us have experienced some degree of isolation and/or quarantine. New, urgent questions have emerged in relation to Alliances and Commonalities and how we gather such as:

How do the restrictions on our movement affect the way we perceive the world in relation to power, place, each other, and our own artistic freedoms?

How can we participate, engage, support, and challenge each other in this time of enforced distance?

How can we remain vulnerable to what we don’t know when we cannot be in the same room, cannot touch, and might have to wear masks to protect ourselves from the air we breathe?

How can we stimulate and safeguard our curiosity about each other and our own research when we are isolated?

And, importantly: What is important now?
