are the methodological implications of strains of thought such as process
philosophy and new materialism, for art and performance research?
Performance & Materiality is the first in a series of six intensive study
days over two years, hosted by the University of Roehampton and University of
the Arts London. The days are designed for creative arts and critical theory
candidates at doctoral level, and are open to TECHNE researchers and associates
at all TECHNE partnership institutions and other interested PhD researchers
within those institutions.
intensive day combines seminars, workshops and talks and hosts an international
guest theorist or artist. Each day is organised around key concepts in
interdisciplinary thought that impact upon the study of art and performance:
materiality, the sonorous, mobility, the common, temporality and labour.
