JANUARY > OCTOBER 2022
Higher artistic education can be considered an important space for artistic experimentation and critical discourse. The Faculdade de Belas-Artes da Universidade de Lisboa (FBAUL) and the Oslo National Academy of Art (KHIO), through its Arts & Crafts department, consider themselves as institutions committed to Artistic Research (AR), in their education, training and development, want to share and think together about AR and future North-South collaborations. Thus, ARcTic South is a joint thought project, seeking to strengthen the connection between academic artistic practices from northern and southern Europe, dismantling the practice of AR, its diffractions and emerging contact zones, as well as the possible (un)doings. the practice of artistic research.
The ARcTic South project is funded by the EEA Grants bilateral initiative program between FBAUL (promoter) and the Arts & Crafts department of the National Academy of Art in Oslo (Partner). The project is led and initiated by Helena Elias and Merete Røstad and will run between January and October 2022.
FBAUL has met KHIO in Oslo. Now it is time for KHIO to visit FBAUL in Lisbon
Last April, the FBAUL team of Arctic south, an EAA grant project, has visited KHIO. The Arctic south team held the seminar Mining the borders of Artistic Research.
This was an opportunity to share undergoing artistic research from both institutions, with presentations of educators, artist researchers and PhD fellows. During the three days of the event, a pop exhibition was displayed, with artistic research works of the Arctic south team.
Now it’s time to KHIO visit FBAUL
Lagoa Henriques Auditorium
On the 8th of June 10 Am, Professors Merete Røstad, Tiril Schrøder, Siri Hermansen from the National Academie of Arts of Oslo (KHIO) will present their artisitc works on behalf of the ARcTic South project, sponsored by the EEA Grants.

The ARcTic South workshop will happen on the 8th and 9th of June at FBAUL. It is a free event specially focused on the artistic research training, and aiming to address PhD Artisitc research fellows who wish to contact and develop reserch ideas with the portuguese and Norwegian team from ARcTic South.
MINING/BORDERS/CARE words came out from the ARcTic South collaborative online sessions in order to curate transversely the seminar and popup exhibition entitled Mining borders of artistic research at KHIO. At the workshop these will be used has frameworks to propel field and studio work artisitc research activities.
For PhDs fellows there will be free lunch and coffe breaks.
The REGISTRATION is required, considering that there are only 4 places available, by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org until the 6th of June.

JANUARY > OCTOBER 2022 I FBAUL AND KHIO
Art education is an important space for experimentation and critical discourse. As Art institutions commit to artistic research (AR) as part of education, training and development. FBAUL and the Art and Craft department at Oslo National Academy of the Art (KHIO) aim to share and think together on AR and futures of collaborative research between North-South. ARcTic South is thus a thinking together project aiming to get closer North and South academic artistic practices, unpack the practice of AR, diffract and emerge contact zones as well possible (un)doings on making artistic research.
ARcTic South is funded by the EEA Grants bi-lateral initiative program between FBAUL (promoter) and the Art and Craft department at Oslo National Academy of the Art (Partner). The project is led and initiated by Helena Elias and Merete Røstad and will run between January and October 2022. Stay tuned!

FBAUL/KHIO Conversations: Intertwining a cartography of common affections in Artistic Research (AR)
Mining/Caring/Bordering: We have gone through six sessions taking on board ways of getting to know each other and we have created verbal and visual maps of common interests in research. By this means we have configured a cartography of common affection that opens channels to bridge or to cope, even if team members are in a diverse state of being (solid, gas, liquid, or gel, to metaphor physical states matter) whether as Professors, Phd Students, Researchers, Artists, Educators.
Nevertheless, to think and practice AR collaboration in different states means to (re)configure a research culture of practices to tune and shape circumstantial infrastructures in order to share. Since AR has been a trendy buzz word in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), artists, academics, theoreticians, curatorial networks, Art institutions and HEIs, have attempted to offer their perspectives and views, regardless of the different institutional legacies that compose the European Arts HEIs .
We feel we are potentiating the emergence of a community of practice in AR. The novelty of the project ARcTic South is that is happening through the terrain of a practice of thinking together among artists practitioners to approach the subject of AR within HEIs that already have a tracking on such commitment. These conversations have brought us an assemblage process of meaning making while pointing to emergent questions to deal at the seminar and workshop, respectively happening in Oslo and Lisbon. These assembled processes have been shaped through intra-actions, in order to bring borderless open fields, landscapes, nomadic constellations and geologies. More to come!
