From the scenic essay to the essay-exhibition

Conference dates: 27.04—29.04.22

Conference hosted by Research centre S:PAM - Studies in Performing Arts & Media, Ghent University.
Keynote speakers: Nora M. Alter, Thijs Lijster, Anselm Franke, Frédérique Aït-Touati, Ho Rui An and Mobile Akademie Berlin

Unlike the realm of literature and film, the essay form in the field of performing arts, visual arts and curatorial practices has received only modest attention. The goal of this three-day conference is to continue the mapping the essay form in these disciplines. By doing so, the conference aims to enrich the existing vocabulary of theatre and performance studies and aspires to resolve the hiatus between the existing theories on the essay.

The conference will be organized with the support of Commissie Wetenschappelijk Onderzoek (CWO) of the Faculty of Arts & Philosophy of Ghent University, Research Centre S:PAM (Ghent University) and Curatorial Studies at KASK School of Arts (Ghent)
