The Artistic Research Group at Kristiania is delighted that the program for this year’s AR@K symposium on 16 March (10.00h - 17.45h GMT+1) is now ready!

We’re very excited to explore this year’s theme DISTORTED IDENTITIES/NEW DILEMMAS with an eclectic group of contributors from the artistic realms of music, film, dance, literature, architecture, fashion/design, media studies and more. What can the artistic experience tell us about our identities as artists, members of society and humans?

📲 Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the symposium will be conducted online, with both fully digital contributions and presentations streamed live from our campus in Oslo. There will be parallel sessions, each with their own stream link/channel, which you will be able to choose from. There is no participation fee.
