Artist Opportunity: Reconfiguring Ruins Workshop

'Reconfiguring Ruins' brings together the School of Advanced Study, University of London, the Open University, Newcastle University and Sheffield University, The NewBridge Project in Newcastle and the Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) in London. 

The orgsnaisers invite artists to participate in a workshop as part of ‘Reconfiguring Ruins: Materialities, Processes and Mediations’. This opportunity is for visual artists and filmmakers whose practice is concerned with the theme of ruins, or those who have an ambition to develop work that explores this theme.
The workshop will include a series of talks, presentations and critical discussions, as well as two site visits to urban ruins, chosen for the contrast between their location and the different cultures that surround them.
The workshops will investigate how ruins are re-configured across time, space and media. They will address the following questions:

  • Is the lens through which we tend to see and encounter ruins Euro-centric? If so, how can different geographies contribute to a richer understanding of the other cultures around and the alternative natures of ruins?
  • Can the skills and approaches from different disciplines contribute to better understand the presence and the temporality of ruins? If so, what channels are commensurate with developing such understanding?

Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 January 2015
