CFP: ABOAGORA Pre-Symposium for Doctoral researchers and Art students 17–18 August 2020, Turku, Finland
ABOAGORA – Between Arts and Sciences invites doctoral candidates and art students from Finland and other Nordic countries to investigate the shifting borders of water and land in the Pre-Symposium event in Turku Archipelago. The theme of ABOAGORA in 2020 is Water, while the Pre-Symposium focuses on the significance of place in research and artistic practices. What are the different senses of place in the work of a researcher or an artist? What do we bring with us, take away and leave behind? How are our practices making their mark on the environment, and how does the environment affect our practices?
In 2020, ABOAGORA Pre-Symposium is a research retreat directed by curator and researcher Taru Elfving (CAA Contemporary Art Archipelago), organized in collaboration with the Archipelago Research Institute of Turku on the island of Seili, a 2-hour boat ride from Turku in the Archipelago Sea.
