To sign up, go to https://oodi.aalto.fi/a/ If the sign up time is over you can ask for a permission to join the course in the middle of the semester too. And the lectures are anyway open to all.

Teemu Mäki, www.teemumaki.com, starts the series and gives some of the later lectures as well, but most of the lecturers will be visitors that are announced later. Many of the speakers will be the same as previously (check the post about lecturers of 2010-2011), but the lectures are new – not repeats of the lectures of the previous year.

And location almost always is: Aalto University School of Art & Design, Hämeentie 135 C, 00560 Helsinki, 8. floor big lecture hall (PR822).

The schedule is: 18 lectures/events, Monday afternoons, 13:00–16:00, every two weeks unless otherwise indicated:

The dates for What’s the Future of Art? in 2013-2014 are listed here. In addition to these 18, there might be a few additional ones. The dates/times/locations of those will be announced separately. Your workload is to attend at least 80% of these. This means that you can skip 3 out of these 18 – but of course I hope you attend all of them.

SPRING 2014

…and the end: A theater evening: Teoreema directed by Niina Hosiasluoma & Teemu Mäki, in Teatteri Takomo. It’s in Finnish, so many of you who don’t speak Finnish may want to skip it. On the other hand half of the play is wordless and the plot & themes are familiar once you’ve seen Pasolini’s version, so it can still be of interest to some in spite of the language. http://www.teatteritakomo.fi/events/category/kosto/. You can book a ticket to any of these performances of it: 28.3.2014, 30.3.2014, 3.4.2014, 5.4.2014, 6.4.2014, 11.4.2014, 12.4.2014, 13.4.2014, 17.4.2014, 18.4.2014, 19.4.2014… …but I recommend and especially welcome you to attend either the premiere or the 19.4.2014 performance.

Location: Esitystaiteen keskus / Performance Center ESKUS, Kaasutehtaankatu 1, Suvilahti, Puhdistamo (rakennus/building 6, 2nd floor): “Circle is a participatory performance where human connection is created and explored through our primal instincts in action. The participants and the performers form a circle around a shared stage area. Any two people from the circle may move into the middle and encounter on the stage while the others witness their encounter from the perimeter. Encounters play with three instinctive interactions: nurture, power struggle and sexuality.”

 

31.3.2014 (NOTICE DATE & LOCATION) A film screening in Bio Rex at 6 pm: Yael Bartana’True Finn – Tosi Suomalainen, commissioned by the IHME-festival.

(The discussion on Friday is not mentioned on the Kiasma website, because Tero is doing it just for us.) http://www.kiasma.fi/kiasma-teatteri/life-in-bytom

27.1.2014 Researcher Sari Karttunen gives a summarizing talk about her research on the change of the role of the artist in society. It’s a summary of “‘Pitäisi laajentaa työalaansa’ – Kuvataiteilijan ammattirooli ja osaamistarpeet tulevaisuuden työelämässä., which was funded and published in 2013 by CUPORE (the (Finnish) Foundation for Cultural Policy Research) http://www.cupore.fi/documents/Cuporejulkaisuja21_2013.pdf
