CFP; “Arts in the Alps Spring School”: memory, place, practice and interdisciplinary site specific research

This looks excellent

Via  Anne-Laure Amilhat Szary  and  Crit-Geog-Forum 

This year Université Grenoble Alpes is launching its first biannual “Arts in the Alps Doctoral Spring School”, from June 12th-16th 2017.

The “Arts in the Alps Spring School” aims a bringing together a community of leading researchers, artists and PhD candidates from the fields of architecture, dance, geography, fine arts, performance, sound art and linguistics to explore, collaborate and experiment new practices of interdisciplinary and practice based site specific research entitled “Gestures of here & there: la fabrique sensible des lieux”.

During the week participants will have the opportunity to experiment, discuss and share interartistic and interdisciplinary practices of site specific research.

Specifically centered on the question of the memory of a place, this research intensive week aims at investigating the site of the Bouchayer-Viallet which has many historical layers: industrial, eco-cultural and artistic. This site held a strategic position in the hydroelectric sector in the early 1900s and is now reconverted as a development zone by the city of Grenoble. A nearly 3000m2 steel and glass factory building is now the home of Magasin les Horizons, a Center for Arts and Cultures which is where our school will be based.

The applications can be sent in English or French to the following address:

 Deadline is March 30th.
