PARADOX European Fine Art Forum
Urgencies and Emergencies
Deadline for the call for contributions is 6 March 2020. The results will be announced by April 6th 2020.
The 2020 Paradox European Fine Art Forum Urgencies and Emergencies is hosted by the Arts Academy at Turku University of Applied Sciences Wednesday 16 – Saturday 19 September 2020.
From 2020 PARADOX intends to change its previous biennial conference format towards a peripatetic, annual forum. We intend to build upon previous successes while placing greater emphasis on this unique opportunity for those engaged in Fine Art education in Europe, and beyond, to physically gather together.
The aim is to generate an annual forum at which we can cooperatively identify and discuss emergencies and their urgencies, and think through concerns and challenges that will bear influence on the present and future conditioning of Fine Art education at all levels. We will simultaneously engage processes to consider new approaches, methods, forms, and models that can advance and nurture Fine Art education in pressurised, conflictual and complicated times.
We are seeking papers, provocations, panels, facilitated discussions and dialogues, and workshops that grapple with the intertwined issues. The forum calls upon those engaged in the sector: cultural workers, students, educators, researchers, administrators, and academic managers. We are genuinely committed to supporting colleagues to discuss the temporal, ideological, political, pedagogical, ethical; and procedural, operational and governing dynamics that may inform how we define the emergencies of our time, and on whose behalf we are warranted to distinguish the urgencies and responses.
We will maintain our dedication to submissions from individuals though we are especially keen to receive proposals from collegiates, collaborators, co-workers from inside one or more institutions; or indeed from those who are not in full-time employment in art academies; and those who are engaged in issues and forms of education beyond the art academy in ways that can inform debate regarding Fine Art education.
