ENSAPC invites to the second Creator Doctus conference on the practice-led PhD and research practices in the arts, in cooperation with the Cosmopolis Platform of the Centre Pompidou, on 29 and 30 November 2019.
The conference is part of the Creator Doctus project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and conducted by the Athens School of Arts, ENSAPC, the non for profit organization EQ-Arts, Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Glasgow School of Art, Merz Akademie Stuttgart, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art and Vilnius Academy of Arts. The project aims at highlighting and encouraging practice-led research practices in the arts, and reinforcing their recognition with an award equivalent to the PhD, at the national, European and international levels.
The second Creator Doctus conference will explore these questions looking at artistic research practices from different perspectives, with contributions from Heba Amin, Arjun Appadurai, Julieta Aranda, Yann Beauvais, Louise Hervé & Chloé Maillet, Chus Martinez, Mpho Matsipa, Angela Melitopoulos, Senam Okudzeto and Elizabeth Povinelli.
Launched as a platform at the Centre Pompidou in 2016, Cosmopolis focuses on research-based, collaborative and interdisciplinary contemporary art practices. Through residencies, exhibitions, discursive programs and publications, it engages with artists who are concerned with the production of relationships and the exchange of knowledge, participating in a resurgence of interest in cosmopolitical approaches.
