Exchange Workshop with Knowledge of the Arts

Exchange Workshop with Knowledge of the Arts

KFI Project will be hosting a workshop exchange with the programme "Knowledge in the Arts" research programme in the University of Arts, Berlin

This workshop exchange will be held on

Tuesday 13th & Wednesday 14th October 2015

  at 9am - 5 p.m.

Duncan Rice Library, University of Aberdeen, Meeting Room 1 (7th Floor)

Things, Materials, Knowledge is a two-day workshop on the 13th and 14th October bringing together the research groups Knowing from the Inside: Anthropology, Art, Architecture and Design (University of Aberdeen) and Knowledge of the Arts (University of the Arts, Berlin). Exploring the shared territory of the two groups the workshop will consider — through thing-centred discussions, making sessions, and focused reading groups — the relationship between knowledge or knowing and the arts (which here might include anthropology). 

We will ask, how are knowing and making related? What is it to know ‘of’ something? How is knowledge (of the arts) used, applied, abused, policed? Is it possible to know ‘from within’? What about materials and things themselves – does privileging them reveal a different way of knowing? How are the senses involved in our relationship with materials, things, knowledge? Where stands the object in these discussions? And in an era of massive waste-production, climate change and increasing awareness of the unequal effects of environmental degradation and exploitation on different human populations, how is the environmental related to these debates and engagements with the material, with things, with knowledge?

The workshop will close with a session planning a joint publication and a follow–up workshop between the groups in Berlin in the Spring 2016.
