Call for proposals SAR conference 2016

International Conference on Artistic Research

The International Conference on Artistic Research, organised by the Society for Artistic Research, will take place in The Hague on 28 & 29 April 2016.

The conference, along with the keynote presentations, will include parallel workshops in four strands. We invite you to submit a proposal for a contribution to one of the strands and intend to provide space for in-depth discussions and active involvement of all participants. We are therefore asking for proposals of 5 to 10 minutes for statements, performances, short papers, interventions, and proclamations. Although we are not following the traditional format of a longer paper followed by Q and A we will accept a few proposals for longer papers (up to 20 minutes) if it is relevant to the intended strand. All of this will provide the ground for intense discussions during the conference on its theme: the relationship of art practice and writing in the context of research.

Please submit your proposal, of no more than 300 words, before 11 January 2016. Indicate which strand you are submitting for and the duration of what you are proposing as well as any special requirements you may have for your contribution. E-mail your statement to , including your name and e-mail address and, if applicable, your affiliation and relevant web link.

The selection of proposals will be completed by 15 February 2016.
