Research Pavilion: Antitheses

Friday, May 19, 2017 - 11:00 to Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 23:59
Sala del Camino, Venice
Research Pavilion

As Artistic Researchers we are engaged with the process of exposing our research. These processes of exposition are naturally uncovered as documents of many kinds. This project is an attempt to grasp these processes as impermanent presentations, a kind of intervention and temporary counterpoint to the Research Pavilion. A project by Doctoral Researchers Matthew Cowan, Leena Kela, Ilya Orlov and Anssi Pulkkinen from the University of the Arts Helsinki (Uniarts Helsinki) in collaboration with Doctoral researchers in the arts from the University of Auckland.

A programme of temporary installations, screenings and performances.


Friday and Saturday mornings will be composed of participatory workshops. Open to everyone.

The afternoon sessions will be presentation and discussion sessions. Open to everyone.

The Research Pavilion is created and hosted by Uniarts Helsinki, and realized together with the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme and the Swedish Art Universities’ collaboration Konstex in co-operation with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and Zurich University of the Arts.
