VT (Re-blogged): EINSTEIN, EISENSTEIN… THE WIND, THE BEACH, AND THE THIRD MEANING

Text published at the website www.virtualpresenttour.com, as part of the project ‘Virtual Tour’ by Mireia c. Saladrigues.

Lots, lots, lots, looooots of wind…
Such a wind flow that makes Vincent’s work gorgeous, today!
If the Backdrop would had been again in Piazza San Marco, would the plastic made a whole round, like when a swing has been pushed too hard?
I decided to record exclusively this situation, at least for once.

But again… other (parallel) events happen. One man came and made a funny interpretation of the ‘Backdrop‘. He associated it with and The Walls Have Tongues (or Peace the Old-Fashioned Way) by Stacey Sacks… and thought of them as a single work, recalling him on the beach. He also thought of Albert Einstein when looking at Stacey’s big tongue crowned by wood chips.

… The mention to Einstein -along with the whole situation- made me think of Sergei Eiseinstein, his hieroglyphs and his theories of ‘Intellectual Montage’

Author: SARN

As of 2011 the Swiss Artistic Research Network (SARN) is a platform for the coordination and communication of activities between and around the artistic research community of Switzerland’s art schools and internationally. Since the implementation of the Bologna Reform and the start of the MFA programmes in Switzerland (2008) artistic research has attracted interest and vibrant debate. In close association with educational programmes and external partners, as well as independent artists, departments for artistic research have developed methodologies, results and strategies in numerous projects. It is SARN’s key assignment to initiate interaction, discuss standards and disseminate swiss artistic research. As established by the Conference of Swiss Schools of Art and Design (KHKD) parallel to the already existing Swiss Design Network. The SARN board members are representatives of the following schools: Academy of Art and Design Basel (FHNW) Bern University of the Arts (HKB) Ecole Cantonale d'Art du Valais (ECAV) Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD) Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Design & Art (HSLU D&K) Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) As representatives of the artists/artistic researchers we have a consultative role for the KHKD and thus see it as a key assignment to give the community a voice and visibility of the specific artistic qualities and independence needed to develop the field. The networks main areas of activities are the SARN workshops, conferences and this homepage. Central discussions and questions are: - visibility of artistic research - best practice and diversity in artistic research - funding and financing of artistic research - future PhD programmes in Switzerland
