NEUER KUNSTVEREIN GIESSEN
What does artistic research look like in practice? And how, on the other hand, can academic research use artistic strategies to meet artworks? Victoria Pérez Royo, our guest for EDITION NO 14. of the ATW TALKS, has been creating contexts for artists’ research as well as researchers’ art investigations over the last years. At the intersection of politics, dance, performance and visualisation practices, she challenges the position of research itself in order to find a way to discuss productions, and production processes. Let’s talk experimental writing, institutional critique, and Roland Barthes on February 1 at 6.00 PM.
Victoria Pérez Royo is a performing arts researcher based in Berlin, and Madrid. She is the co-director of the M.A. program in Performing Arts Practice and Visual Culture in Madrid, and assistant professor of Aesthetics at the University of Zaragoza. As a guest professor, she has been invited to international B.A. and M.A. programs in the performing arts in Finland, Holland, Germany, Chile, Peru, Costa Rica, amongst others. Perez Royo is a member of the research association ARTEA. Recent publications comprise "Dirty Room" (with Juan Dominguez, in press), "Componer el plural. Escena, cuerpo, política" (with Diego Agulló, 2016), and “To be continued. "10 textos en cadena y unas páginas en blanco" (with Cuqui Jerez, 2012).
ATW TALKS / EDITION NO. 14 / Wednesday, 1/2/2017, 6.00 PM / ATW, Room A 118, Karl-Glöckner-Straße 21, Phil. II, Haus A, D-35394 Gießen
The ATW TALKS are a series of talks and lectures at the ATW, the Institut für Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft at Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen. They have been taking place in a monthly interval since the end of 2015. The aim of the ATW TALKS is to create a forum for discussions on contemporary dance, theatre and performance, contributing to the academic and artistic discourse at the institute, in the city and in the Hessian theatre landscape. What is often considered an advantage of the ATW, will be equally true for the talks and lectures: hidden away from a general public with its necessity for self-representation, the context in Gießen offers a unique possibility for an open exchange with a critical perspective, for intense and extensive debates. Each edition of the ATW TALKS will be moderated by members of staff working at the institute. Invitations are extended to artists and academics from the performing arts and affiliated disciplines. The talks and lectures will generally be conducted in English, on certain occasions though, they might be conducted in German or French.
In Winter 2016/2017, the ATW TALKS are being organised in collaboration with Neuer Kunstverein Gießen in the frame of Making Theatre Now, a series of events on the aesthetics of production in contemporary performance. Making Theatre Now is kindly supported by Gießener Hochschulgesellschaft and Kulturamt Gießen.
Concept and organisation: Georg Döcker / Moderation: Staff of the Institut für Angewandte Theaterwissenschaft
