Arts in the Alps

draw out-follow by foot-devise-plan-map-score-trace-ponder-delineate-investigate-look for-discover-experiment-pursue… These etymological roots and routes of trace making are ever so present in the ways in which we practice our research in the arts, humanities and the social sciences.

This year we would like to invite you to apply to our 2nd biannual “Arts in the Alps” Doctoral Spring School entitled MAKING MARKS, LA FABRIQUE SENSIBLE DES TRACES that will address the traces that are materialized with and through practice based research Experimentation. The Arts in the Alps 2019 Spring School will bring together a vibrant community of researchers and artists from the arts, humanities and the social sciences (or art, dance, geography, computer science and performance) to explore and experiment the ways in which sensorial becomes material within the context of practice based research. During this weeklong event we aim to focus on the ways in which material traces are made through and for artistic research and in turn can be shared across international communities.

The school’s objectives are to:
  • interrogate the embodied situated thinking that underpins practice based research;
  • question the ways in which the materiality of trace making informs research;
  • question how traces become artefacts which are shared across interdisciplinary and scientific communities.

Practical workshops and reflective seminars will address :
  • how the materiality of artistic practice can be used as a reflective tool?
  • how the physicality of creative research artefacts move beyond the performative moment of making?
  • how perceptual traces or artefacts can be shared between different scientific fields?

This year the event will take place in the new « Maison de la création et de l’innovation MACI » our new building on the University of Grenoble Alps main campus and as well as surrounding sites. Our new facility has specialized spaces for making and documenting practice based research and aims to support the ways in which the arts, humanities and the social sciences produce research in terms of process and product.
