A postgraduate workshop on practice-based research

Tuesday, 20 May 2014, 6-7.30pm, Room B04, Birkbeck School of Arts, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0PD

Organizers: Agata Lulkowska and Eva Nieto McAvoy

Join a photographer, two curators and a performer to discuss what it means to work on Iberian and Latin American visual cultures. These four speakers are art practitioners as well as postgraduates at Birkbeck and they will discuss the relationship between ‘hands on’ research and writing. Agata Lulkowska will speak about the differences of using visual media for the artistic purposes and as a research methodology for her fieldwork in Colombia; Dolores Galindo will examine visual evidence between art and politics in Mexican performance art; Leyneuf Tines will present her work on embodied memory and the repertoire of trauma in Colombia; and Érica Valente will discuss contemporary Portuguese and Brazilian cinema. Using images to illustrate their talks, each speaker will explore the conflicts and synergies between practice-based research as an artist or curator, and the demands of academic inquiry.
