Impact

DISCOURSE POWER RESISTANCE 12

DPR Conference 2012

+++IMPACT+++

2 – 4 April 2012, Plymouth College of Art, UK

The conference considers what ‘Impact’ means for us, our work, our understandings and future developments. Governments, international agencies, funding bodies and policy-makers increasingly use this term. What does it mean?

The social sciences, creative arts, education and humanities are currently under attack on a global scale as funding is concentrated on STEM related subjects; but the threatened fields of scholarship are themselves evolving new ways of thinking and practice and new sites and methods of enquiry.

Practitioners and academics in the threatened areas are responding to the situation with vitality and determination: experimental, adventurous, playful, but serious in redefining boundaries and finding new ways forward. DPR 12 maps these emerging knowledge regimes, their impacts, the imagined futures they enable and the implications for practice, research, learning and teaching.

DPR and PCA have joined forces for this conference. DPR is deeply engaged in the critical interrogation of contemporary culture as it plays out in the academy in research, learning and teaching. Similarly, PCA is working with energy and passion to implement a vision of high quality education for life in contemporary arts practice. Bringing the two together is an adventure in creative synergy.

The conference explores the potential impact on each other of the creative arts and social sciences in terms of theory and practice.

All conference streams are designed to encourage contributions from across the creative arts, social sciences and humanities. Click here http://www.dprconference.com/conference/streams for details.

Adorno

CRITICAL THEORY AND THE ARTS – MASTERS PROGRAM

The School of Visual Arts, New York

Introduction

“Art knows us better than we know ourselves.” –T. W. Adorno

The program in Critical Theory and the Arts is an intensive yearlong study for students with an edgy involvement in the problems and questions of making art today—in what art has become, and is becoming—and who are no less engaged in wanting to understand what is at stake in the relation of these questions to contemporary social conflict and reality.

The program responds to a need: For thinking about art has never before been so protean, so broadly inventive and urgently central to the whole of social, philosophical and political reflection. Every major area of thought now turns considerable attention to art in expectation that art will provide the key to solving its central questions.

At the same time, in art itself, every aspect of its reality presents dynamic conflicts and puzzles that demand theoretical reflection. Those directly involved in the arts can no longer imagine that artists proceed naïvely; mixing passion with thin air. While artists of earlier generations once struggled to disguise the thinking labor that went into their work, today art theory has become part—often an explicit part—of all art-making. To an unprecedented degree, developments in art theory even directly transform art.
