As part of the annual KTD Internat, a series of three public talks will take place on Wednesday 18th September, 17:00–19:30, in room S1 at Konstfack.

The speakers are: Luis Berríos-Negrón (PhD candidate, KTD Programme), Kristen Kreider (Professor of Fine Art and Director of the PhD Programme at Goldsmiths College, London) and Thomas Markussen (Associate professor and co-founder of the Social Design Research Unit at the University of Southern Denmark).

17:00 - Luis Berríos-Negrón: Presenting Neganthropic Anarchive
'Nonsphere XVII: Neganthropic Anarchive' is the year-long installation component of my PhD titled 'Breathtaking Greenhouse Parastructures.' The PhD has been evolving as a deposition of 'greenhouse’ from a Caribbean perspective. By deposing its history as gas, effect, and technic I ask: what are the forms and forces of ‘greenhouse’ in the geological timeline of the Anthropocene?; if ‘greenhouse’ is the paranormal technology to colonial memory, how can its deposition process the act of remembering-to-forget the ongoing trauma of colonial violence?; and, if greenhouse is itself the enframing of the past and future of natural history and of natural science, then how can its deposition offer healings, transitions, and remediations away from the seeming messianic destiny of Global Warming? Through the talk, I will briefly introduce those questions within the broader doctoral work. Thereafter, I will present material from the opening of the Anarchive as a long-term public work, or 'social pedestal' that is set to contrast and process the doctoral work, as well as to continue to broaden the research-based context of my Nonspheres series. To conclude, I will offer you a tasting of 'memory water' from the Anarchive.

17:30 - Kristen Kreider: You could think of it as a commingling of lots of little circles, like something planted or a blossoming of refusal
Three years ago, in September 2016, I took up a position as Professor of Fine Art and Director of Art Research at Goldsmiths College, University of London. Around that same time, myself and my collaborative partner completed the first project/chapter of our large-scale research project, Ungovernable Spaces. Taking this concurrence as a starting point, this talk explores how my current research relates to and informs my development of the art research programme, and vice versa. Here I will identify the elements that I consider key to developing an art research programme and related research environment:

Curiosity Mars Rover
Palais de Tokyo
The Inhuman Microphone
Hito v. Hirst

And I will intersperse this with developments in my practice and/as research over the past three years, including thoughts on: community, resistance and the sacred; thinking and action in the now; roots and foundations, storytelling and new beginnings; spinning, mistakes and the importance of the hand.

18:30 - Thomas Markussen: Building environments in the murky territory of research through art and design
Research through design is essentially about understanding how artistic experiments and processes of designing can serve as the primary method of inquiry into questions relevant for art and design. However, the field is currently characterized by so many different practices and approaches that it appears to be a murky territory rather than an established research field. In this talk, Thomas Markussen will share some thoughts on how to build environments and develop phd curriculum that meet the inherent diversity (and disagreements) within art and design research. By drawing on his own experiences with setting up phd education at Kolding School of Design, Aarhus School of Architecture and University of Southern Denmark, Markussen will account of some of the challenges that may occur when art academies and design schools become research accredited institutions – a transition with many potential bumps on the road.
