Critical Dialogs
A Contemporary Art Podcast
June 15th - December 31st
‘Critical Dialogs’ is a contemporary art podcast that will investigate the latent potential of the podcast format to support critical dialogue and innovative forms of art criticism. ‘Critical Dialogs’ will explore emergent approaches to and forms for art criticism that are enabled by today’s media landscape and changing public sphere. Pilot episodes will take the form of conversations among professional art critics on topical issues such as decolonizing/queering art criticism, and the ethics of critique. hrough these conversations, Christine Antaya and Matthew Rana intend to establish new directions for future episodes, while also contributing to the development of critical discourse around art in the Öresund region and connecting the local art scene to broader critical communities both nationally and internationally.

The aesthetic expression of music research
25 October 2019

Even though the artistic doctoral degree in Sweden has not reached the age of ten years, research in music through artistic and aesthetic expression has been around much longer. Historically we find many examples of artists that have approached their practice with a research attitude, as well as sound and music researchers working in close contact with aesthetic practices. The seminar provides examples of research practices in and through music and related art forms, where practical and aesthetic forms are part of the intellectual process.
