This year, I was coordinating ARTikulationen, the annual research festival of the KUG’s Doctoral School for Artistic Research. It took place 5–8 October at the KUG’s Theater im Palais in Graz, featuring ten doctoral presentations, nine performative intermezzi, two keynotes, and a panel in collaboration with ORF musikprotokoll. The panel “Whodentity – Self and Other in Artistic Collaborations” that I was moderating connected both to this year’s ARTikulationen theme and the context of my new research project simularr. The panelists were anthropologist and performer Caroline Gatt, double bassist John Eckhardt, composer and sound artist Miya Masaoka, and composer and researcher Pia Palme.
Our PEEK project on novel modes of collaboration offers a two-month funded research residency in spring 2023.
Our coupled-systems improvisation duo performs at the 59th edition of the festival in December 2022.
We present a triplet of multi-sensory mixed media entities at the Kunstraum Steiermark show.
Our new improvisation project ‘Strip & Embellish’ will perform at the 20th edition of the festival, using a strong interlinking of two systems.
