Vladimir Miller

Vladimir Miller is an artist researcher, scenographer and dramaturge. His practice aims at re-negotiating institutional modes of spatial production in collaborative research settings. He uses collective building processes to shift the relationship between practice and space within institutional environments towards commoning and self-organisation. His work in education is closely interwoven with his research. As program curator and mentor at a.pass, Brussels and other institutions he facilitates collaborative environments and research trajectories. Vladimir Miller is currently completing his doctoral thesis at the PhD in Practice at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna. He was lecturer in Scenography at the University of Hamburg and at KASK Ghent and Guest Professor at the Institute for Applied Theatre Sciences at the JLU in Gießen. Vladimir Miller has been a frequent collaborator with the choreographers and artists Philipp Gehmacher, Meg Stuart, Anne Juren, Jozef Wouters, Claudia Bosse, Moritz Frischkorn and others. His artistic work can be described as collaborative performance-making that incorporates scenography, directing, dramaturgy, performance and video in varying combinations. Vladimir Miller is the curator of Cycle 3 of the a.pass Research Center.

Vladimir
Hey Krõõt!
At the end of the every block the curator writes a documentation of what happened in the block. The reason to do it, is to pass on pass on some information to the other curators and also to develop on and add to the archive of methodologies at work at a.pass. 
 
I will be writing this report as I am the designated block curator. It would be great to have a conversation about the work(shop) that you proposed. I suggested this interview format so that you don’t have to write a report. I have the Intuition that reporting would be strange in connection with your workshop and your work in general.

Research Futures Conference Report

 

Please note that all replies and comments in this report are not verbatim transcriptions but thematic summaries. For full statements made on the public Day 3 please see the video recordings.

Introduction

On July 8-10, 2020 a.pass has hosted the conference Research Futures. The conference took the form of a gradually expanding meeting of practitioners in the fields of art, education and artistic research. The conference was initiated by a.pass in collaboration with four other institutions of artistic research participating in a.pass’ comparative benchmarking study: Dutch Art Institute, Jan Van Eyck Academy, UNIARTS Helsinki and Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. The conference brought representatives from these five institutions together with professionals working in the field of education, arts, culture, artistic research, curation and activism to expand the result of the comparative study towards a series of questions concerning the futures of artistic research in relationship to its institutions.

RESEARCH FUTURES

8-10 July 2020 / a.pass

Conference

The upcoming conference "Research Futures" will bring representatives from five institutions of artistic research together with professionals working in the field of education, arts, culture, artistic research, curation and activism to engage with a series of questions emerging from this comparative (self)-study. We want to understand better what is the range of educational and institutional strategies and practices operating in the field of artistic research today. Where do we see common struggles, pitfalls and current problematics with respect to our concerns with inclusivity, sustainable support structures, institutionalization of artistic research and politics of publication. And finally we would like to compare ourselves to the future: what are possible scenarios for artistic research to continue its contribution to the field of artistic production, and how can these contributions respond to the changing social realities of a challenging future?

Block 2016/II: Uninvited research – Excursions

1 May-31 July 2016

Jean-Léon_Gérôme_003
Where do we practice our research, and how does changing that affect what can be talked about and experimented with? How to give a practice a new context? What can we do, think, read and try together when being on the move? We will take this opportunity to re-examine mobility of research practices in the context of de-colonial and feminist discourse on space and its social production. How do notions of power and privilege figure into this academic exploration of the presupposed „outside“ of the institution? With our colonial histories, what does it mean today to go on an excursion, to go looking „elsewhere“ for knowledge? Which gestures of power and othering are we replicating by using these methods of (ad)venture in our research? This block will be guided by an attempt to apply de-colonial thinking to the very idea of research itself, to unlearn its innocence and to insist that coloniality and its critique apply as soon as we open our doors and step outside, and as soon as we think towards „other“ places and discourses.

Vladimir Miller / Peter Stamer FORGED THEORY

5-7 July 2016 / a.pass

artwork by Miler Lagos
„I remember this workshop where we were asked to write theory in support of our research. Not to go and read and quote existing work but to make it up, to quote from a fictional pile of books. What would be such a fictional body of writing to situate our work in? What kind of fanstasy discouse does our work exist in? To be honest: Is our work not already producing a potential yet unwritten discourse? We keep looking until we find that ghost in someone else’s writing, calling it research, no? Its divination, ghost hunting, séances. Can we go one step further and conjure up those voices we are looking for? In that workshop we looked at the many fragmented ways those voices appear in a piece of writing: blurbs on the back page, quotes from form other literary works, footnotes, citations, bibliography lists and lists for further reading. All the ways a supporting structure of precedents is woven into and around an academic text. Mere fragments in themselves, they point to whole architectures of thought. Their distinct style, their no-nonsense-brevity speak volumes. How does an archeologist distinguish between a shard and a piece of pottery made to look like one? He cant help but imagine the vase.“ Richard Crane „Territorial Discourses“, Michigan University Press, 1998
