The opening event of the project is a symposium that invites guests from cross-disciplinary artistic practices to investigate and discuss the transformative role of illustration in contemporary communication. At the center of this is the discussion of what defines illustration practices in our times, and ethics and challenges connected to this.
Materiality and Space
While the first symposium treated the role of illustration in contemporary times, the second symposium looks at the diverse landscape that has opened up due to the technological changes and new approaches in illustration. Materiality and space opens for a broad and playful exploration of illustration on its own and in cross-disciplinary projects. Illustration as spacial representations, multi-sensory viewer experiences are some of the areas that will be explored. The symposium is planned to take place in Turkey.
Illustration and the Non‑Representable
The final symposium will conclude the artistic research of the three main projects. It takes place, once again, in a cross-disciplinary setting. Falstadsenteret is an important partner in the development of this event.
