NSU Winter Symposium – January 31st to February 2nd, 2011, in Århus,  

Call for Papers and Presentations
The Winter Symposium 2011 is the third of six meetings in the study  
circle: Artistic Research – Strategies for Embodiment, organized  
under the Nordic Summer University (NSU).

The study circle invites researchers and artists from all fields to  
take part in discussions on the theme: Strategies for Embodiment  
within Artistic Research; questioning and probing into ways for  
embodying and communicating artistic research processes and their  
The theme for this, the second year of our study circle, is “Artistic  
Knowing”. The focus will be on language and discourse, and the  
development of strategies for embodying and disseminating the  
experiences drawn from the field of Artistic Research.

As a rapidly evolving discipline Artistic Research is the site of  
ongoing and evolving epistemological debate regarding the  
foundations, scope and validity of the knowledge it uncovers as well  
as creates, and the mechanisms by which it embodies such knowledge.  
This symposium will endeavour to address these issues in order to  
advance the debate by focusing on notions of “embodiment” as they  
have emerged in our discussions to date, but also with regard to the  
proposals received in response to this call.

The work of the study circle will culminate in the publication of an  
anthology (to be published in 2013) that will focus on communicating  
methodologies, specific examples of artistic research, and the  
dissemination of knowledge through various media and multimedia  
solutions. The aim is to reach out to our peers as well as art  
students interested in the field, and you are invited to contribute.  
We invite you to continue working on a contribution through the  
following three meetings of the study circle with continuous feed  
back from the participants.
For the winter symposium we welcome proposals for presentations in  
various formats, ranging from demonstrations and presentations/exerts
