17.00 – 18.00 pm Researchers Platform / IAC Café – Marion von Osten in conversation with the curator Emily Fahlén on long term projects and collaborations

A new research archive and announcements board at Inter Art Center (IAC) will be installed permanently at the Center from 18th of May onwards. Easy to build and to be handled, the elements will make diverse research projects by doctoral students of Lund University as well as researchers and artists in residence at IAC – in process and in their final form-, publicly accessible.

Additionally a researchers platform is installed at the IAC café in one of its former dead corners. The platform creates a site with multifunctional display furniture to share and exchange research findings and materials between doctoral students, fellows and the public. It can be used for meetings, discussions, screenings and presentations of documents, films, proposals, drafts, performances as well as extra-curricular activities. Doctoral students, residents and artists working at the Inter Arts Center are welcome to use and program the platform and its multifunctional displays from 18th of May 2018 onwards.

The inserts aim to initiate cross-disciplinary exchange in research processes as well as to highlight the outstanding institutional context of the IAC as part of Lunds University for long-term research by visual artists, performers and musicians. The five infrastructural inserts and graphic templates for the IAC have been proposed and realized as open source designs by Marion von Osten as part of her PhD project. The PhD will be defended on 31st of May 2018. After the disputation the infrastructural elements are donated to the Inter Arts Center.

Disputation: 31 May 2018, 10.00 am
