A short presentation of Malin Arnell’s research project as PhD Candidate at DOCH, part of Stockholm University of the Arts

Working title: My Body Remains the Enduring Reality - Participation Out of Bounds*

Working within a feminist epistemological framework, investigating concepts of intimacy, sexuality, and power, I will explore critical issues of participation in choreographic spaces and situations. What are the relationships between consensus making and the articulation of conflicts in the creation of possible spaces for participation, collectivity and community?

* In sports »out of bounds« refers to being outside the playing boundaries of the field. »My Body Remains the Enduring Reality« is a quotation from Yvonne Rainer.

During 2011-2014 Arnell was a visiting scholar at the » Department of Performance Studies / Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.

67,3% performative research seminar Malin Arnell
When: May 10-12, 2014
Where: Weld, Norrtullsgatan 7, subway station Odenplan

Over the course of three days, artist Malin Arnell will enact a performative research seminar at Weld in Stockholm. The seminar encompasses a number of public actions, screenings and discussions that directly engage her ongoing artistic research, which is generated through live events. Specifically, the title 67,3% performative research seminar points to the moment that this seminar occupies within the arc of her research, which currently takes place within the framework of a PhD in Choreography at University of Dance and Circus / Stockholm University of the Arts.

Arnell understands 67,3% performative research seminar as a methodology of entanglements in which each participant comes to exist within the research, and in which the movement across reenactments, presentations and conversations generates the choreographic.
