counterfield (n.)  where practitioners and researchers experiment with emergent forms of

knowledge production

a space of learning

out of kilter

We wonder how to disrupt institutionalised modes of knowledge production that proliferate and repress? From within, what can we build beyond the scaffolds of the university?

Blurring the binary between theory and practice

within the geography of visual cultures.

An informal and nourishing space

to share and experiment together

to push boundaries, to make noise

to search for freedoms afforded within the institution and without

moving beyond journal publications, conferences, lectures.

as well the academic parameters which dominate the production of research

To

play with methodologies and concepts

Intersecting with multiple research streams (mapping, connecting, disrupting, transforming)

through flows of embodiment, performance choreography, materiality and  their excesses.

moving within and beyond art-making methods-practices, exhibitions, curatorial spaces

How do different intentions and trajectories unfold?

thinking and resisting

spaces for

Opening

ways of living and working with each other.  

redressing ourselves, shedding

spores, overflowing, infecting,

A living organism, folding and unfolding.

Doing and Undoing

REFLECTING on how we LEARN

CREATING room for FEEDBACK

EXPERIMENTING with PROTOCOLS (literature reviews, ethics forms, annual reports)

Finding ways for our terms to merge into one another.
