LECTURE PERFORMANCE – BETWEEN ART AND ACADEMIA

Friday 07 Jun 4:00pm Sunday 09 Jun 5:00pm

Artistic research takes emblematic form in the lecture performance – a widespread phenomenon on the international art scene of recent years. The genre has its roots in the performance and conceptual art of the 1960s, and balances on the boundary between art and academia.

As a hybrid of research, lecture, visual art and performative narrative techniques, the lecture performance as format addresses key questions of the status and potential of art in knowledge society, as well as the mechanisms of producing and framing knowledge.

In a three-day seminar, Overgaden focuses on the lecture performance as a unique discipline, exploring the genre’s characteristics, aesthetics and location at the intersection of artistic and academic discourse. The focal point of the seminar is a series of lecture performances by Danish and international artists, whose contributions span a wide range of expressive forms and fields of political, philosophical, popular cultural, legal and anthropological investigation.

The seminar also includes contextualising dialogues between and presentations by leading researchers and theorists in the field, addressing seminal aspects of the lecture performance from a range of perspectives. As well as an introduction to the historical development and characteristics of the genre, the seminar addresses the relationship and exchange between artistic and academic research, the dramaturgy of the lecture format, the subject on stage and language as medium.

The conference will be in English, and everybody is welcome. Registration is not required.
