5 de febrero de 2024

Until May 31, 2024, applicants may submit proposals for works that are framed within Práctica Artística como Investigación, as long as they account for the production of knowledge through various fields of artistic, academic and artistic practice. non-academic.

The Dirección de Investigación, Creación y Postgrado from the Arts Faculty, UC-Chile, is pleased to announce its "II Congreso Latinoamericano de Práctica Artística como Investigación", which will take place between October 2-4, 2024 in Santiago, at Centro de Extensión, Campus Oriente UC-Chile.

Artist-researchers – both with university affiliation or independent – and postgraduate students are invited to disseminate work framed as Practice as Research or Artistic Research, as they account to produce knowledge through various fields of both academic and non-academic artistic practice.

Although the terms ‘Practice as Research’ or ‘Artistic Research’ partly resist a closed and absolute definition, this conference seeks to make visible the epistemological richness and methodological plurality inherent in lines of artistic/academic inquiry through investigations that:

  • Present clear and explicit research questions, as well as a consistent methodological design to address them.
  • Present questions that are answered through artistic practice, even when they are complemented with other types of knowledge.
  • Put the process over the artistic product.
  • Present artistic practice itself as problematization, that is, practices that question norms, assumptions, and established ways of understanding the various artistic manifestations.
  • Aim, as their ultimate objective, to produce new knowledge beyond the artistic result that occurs after the investigation.

Investigations that merely document or record artistic processes with an artistic product in mind, but that do not fall within these operational definitions, would have no place in the conference. However, theoretical work will be considered indeed, as they address epistemological, methodological, ontological and/or ethical problems regarding artistic practice and research, as well as their relationship with different disciplines of knowledge.
