Call for Contributions | PARSE Conference 2017, Sweden

parseThe deadline for proposals is February 10, 2017, however, early submission is recommended.

The second biennial PARSE conference at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts, University of Gothenburg, Sweden 15 to 17 November 2017 takes as its point of departure the question of EXCLUSION. Call for contributions – panels, papers, performances, screenings, collaborations and workshops.

How does exclusion operate at a local, national and international level both within the arts, in education and within cultural production more generally? How does one get to imagine oneself as an artist of any discipline – in terms of race, class and access to education? Within the arts, how can we improve access to learning and the formation of experience – and what can we model from other disciplines in this respect? How do images of exclusion – from media images of stranded civilians in Aleppo to molecular images of diseases untreated due to pharmaceutical drug finance and distribution – circulate as both knowledge and neutralisation? What are the politics of access? Do strategies and infrastructures of inclusion simply replicate and reinforce individualised imaginaries within broadly hierarchical social structures, particularly as artistic habits of production are increasingly exported as economised knowledge production to non-Western parts of the world?

Both within and far beyond the field of cultural production, people are excluded from territorial, subjective, environmental and imaginative spaces, be they national or virtual. The weight of the world, as Pierre Bourdieu would have it, is slighted against the vast majority of people living upon it. What forms of research and which actions can be taken within the artistic and pedagogical environment that hold open spaces of contact and forms of rights?

The PARSE conference on exclusion welcomes individual and collective proposals on the theme of exclusion from all disciplines. As well as the arts (visual art, design, performance, music, architecture, craft, etc.), we are particularly interested to learn from the social sciences, natural sciences, law, medicine as well as from the professional sphere. We welcome proposals for presentation nodes and are interested in all forms of presentation.
