What comes after research?
During this talk, I will present different artistic research methodologies that I use in my work, explaining the way they open the artistic process to political realms and are infected by it. I will focus mostly on feminist politics, and at the way they can be used and produced within an artistic practice and methodologies and in their turn, affect politics again. Following the general frame on ‘diagnosis’ that the lecture series puts up, I will focus on the question of aesthetics and the way it can challenge certain politics and in particular talk about the latest film I worked on Who is afraid of ideology? Part 2that brings together questions of feminism, ecology, sickness and filmmaking as a research practice. I will also show some examples of collaborations and talk about the artistic and aesthetic forms that these collaborations take. The question of giving form to research will be a central point, as well as the use of the filmic set as a stage for research and collaborations. (Marwa Arsanios)
