Art and Craft Lectures
The Art and Craft Lectures, hosted by the Art and Craft Department at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, is an annual lecture series devoted to art education and research that stresses an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the relationship between art, theory, and politics. The series, part of the MFA programs in the department, invites scholars, artists, and curators from different disciplines to give a public lecture as well as to partake in an in-depth colloquium of readings and close engagement with students and faculty’s research and practice.
The fall 2022 series, curated by Sara Yazdani and Susanne M. Winterling in dialogue with faculty, is devoted to sensing with the objective to rethink knowledge, body, and practice through aesthetics, perception, matter, and ecologies, beyond the traditional humanities. It takes the form of traditional keynotes that guides the semester, and as a platform for students and faculty to share and discuss practice, concerns, and inspiration, with an open door to the public.
Taking a collaborative approach to practice and research, the lecture series seeks to generate inspiration, critical navigation, and community across the arts, with a focus on art and craft, and art and public space.
The Art and Craft Lectures take place on Thursdays at 3pm CET unless otherwise specified. It takes place virtually via Zoom and in the main auditorium at KHiO. The lectures are free and open to the public.
