Stockholm University of the Arts (SKH) is delighted to announce that the programme for Alliances & Commonalities 2022 is now released. SKH is proud to host the biannual Alliances & Commonalities conference. It is an integral part of our research environment and brings together individuals and groups who are interested in engaging with and linking with a growing international community of affiliated and independent artistic researchers.

Curatorial statement
Alliances & Commonalities 2022 invites artists and researchers to share ways in which their artistic research is reassembling, responding, reconfiguring, and reconstituting in the aftermath of the past two years. Who, what, where, when, why and how are artists and researchers situating their practices now? What transforms? What transmits? What matters?

While we were planning this iteration, the unpredictability of the virus and the risks involved in asking people to share in-real-life social spaces led to our decision to hold the 2022 conference completely online. As a result, while the researchers you meet will be sharing specific projects emerging from a range of artistic practices and disciplines they will also be actively exploring ways to share, interact with and discuss artistic research in an exclusively online context.

At a glance the 2022 conference will include online explorations into archiving, diffractive storytelling, speculative fabulation, somatic practices, ecological praxis, more-than-human-ness, practices of caring, crafting, walking, writing and food-ing and many other approaches to AR, gathering within our four profile areas: Concept and Composition, Bodily and Vocal Practices, Art, Technology, Materiality and Site, Event, Encounter.

We’re very much looking forward to experiencing Alliances & Commonalities 2022 with you.

What is most urgent in your research right now? How is the aftermath of Covid-19 affecting your questions, your methods, your dissemination modes, your practice, your research? How do your methods transition from in-real-life to the virtual realm and back again; what transforms, what transmits, what matters?
