The online symposium brings together researchers, cultural workers, and artists to address topics around the auditive exploration of art, the use of sound, etc. in the context of visual primacy. It will include presentations of existing, ongoing and planned projects, and shall particularly give room to the discussion of related challenges and possibilities. Examined will be, for instance, art formats that make use of sound, music and the auditive, auditive art mediation forms such as guided tours and audio guides, and the use of the auditive to stimulate aesthetic experiences in regard to inclusion.
The online seminar aims to raise ethical questions in the artistic field, its practice, education and research. How can ethics be understood and practiced in different artistic formats, and how is ethics practiced in artistic education? What happens to the ethical framework when art moves into the research institution and how is the issue of artistic freedom affected? The seminar will feature two keynote speakers, the artist Geir Tore Holm and Professor Karmenlara Ely, as well as a film by Professor Jonas Dahlberg about his design proposal for the memorial for the terrorist attack on Utøya.
