Call for contributions for the 5th Inter-format symposium on time (and inter-formativity)

Deadline 31st of May, Symposium dates 22–25 August, 2015, Nida

This year marks the fifth iteration for the international symposium and aims to reflect its own course, with the focus on artistic and academic notions of time and inter-formativity itself. The participatory nature of the symposium—between a conference and an art festival—brings together 30–40 professionals for three days and nights to an intensive sharing and working environment.


Open call for Nida Doctoral School residency and courses: “Smoke and Mirrors—Staged Arguments and the Legitimation of Artistic Research”

Deadline for proposals: 31 May 2015

If science is a fairytale that is hard to disbelieve (Bruno Latour), then scientific research is nothing but scripting fiction. What’s more, the latter is the domain of art. Be it truthful deceit, legitimate hocus-pocus, or real fiction, such a story requires a great deal of creativity and knowledge in carrying out such a persuasion. The persuasion will be carried out at the residencies, inaugural courses and opening forum of the Nida Doctoral School by artists, curators, professors (featuring Anthony Dunne, Timothy Ingold and Fiona Raby, among others) and doctoral students.
