Institut finlandais and Q̶͈̬̿͝l̴̛̬̝̒o̵̰̍̔ǘ̴̼ḓ̷̟̓̅s̷̻̦̆Q̸̠̿͒u̷͓͚͊̽A̸̛̘͝r̷̖͈̀͝ṭ̶̏͘z̶̩̩͛ research-cluster are happy to launch together The Very First Sensorium of Artistic Research as a two-day gathering to be in touch with artistic research through performative forms of exposition. Finland has been a pioneer country in artistic research since the nineties, partly due to supportive legislation that affirmed the right to give doctoral degrees to artists. During the last two decades, artistic research practitioners have been trans- and cross- experimenting and boldly speculating on new aesthetic and epistemic relationships between art and research. During these two days of Sensorium, artists-researchers who operate on or have visited Tutke/Performing Art Research Centre and the Fine Arts Academy doctoral and postdoctoral artistic research platforms (Uniarts Helsinki) will offer a panorama of original research presentations, whether performed or installed, in dialogue with guests artists-researchers from French programs and labs.
