Inspiration Day – Artistic Research
Artistic research - what can it be and what collaborations can we create at Linnaeus University?
On November 30, 2023, you are very welcome to an inspiration day on artistic research and teaching at Linnaeus University. The inspiration day is a university-wide initiative to highlight the importance of artistic research, artistic teaching and artistic work. One goal of the day is to draw the attention of all staff and students to the importance and possibilities of artistic research and teaching. Another goal of the day is to open up for cross-border collaborations at Lnu that include artistic research.
The day is open to all interested staff and students at Lnu. Pre-registration is required, but participation is free of charge.
A working group from the research and teaching subjects at Lnu that conduct artistically oriented research and teaching has developed the program content, and you can find the program in its entirety below.
The inspiration day takes place in the M-house at Linnaeus University's campus in Växjö. You will then take part in inspiring lectures, performance and poster presentations from both employees and students at the university who contribute with an overview of the research landscape and examples from their artistic research and practice.
Register for the day, come and be inspired, and take the opportunity to think about how collaborations with artistic researchers and practicing artists could work together with your own research or teaching.
The event is in Swedish and English.
A warm welcome!
The working group includes:
Bodil Petersson, Dan Alkenäs, Zeenath Hasan, Cecilia Davidsson and Åsa Ståhl.
Questions welcome at email@example.com

Who’s afraid of konstnärlig forskning?
Föreläsningen syftar till att ge en kortfattad översikt över konstnärlig forskning som akademiskt forskningsområde i Sverige. Vad för slags forskning görs, och vad är den bra för? Hur finansieras den – externt och internt? Hur hänger konstnärlig forskning och internationalisering ihop? Hur kan forskningen bidra till tvärvetenskap och till tvärkonstnärliga samarbeten?
The project Creating ‘Hope’ is an on-going cross disciplinary research over an artwork by Erika Lagerbielke for The Cathedral of Lund 2023. The research is conducted by Erika Lagerbielke LNU, Lena Liepe LNU, Max Liljefors LU, Jayne Svenungsson LU and Lena Sjöstrand The Cathedral of Lund. The researchers cover the fields of fine art, art science and theology as science and practice. The group has been working on the project while the artwork was realized and have had access to the artistic process.
From designers to shapeshifters
With dirty feet and hands, a woven carrier bag full of materials MYCKET will share parts of Trollperception in the Heartlands – artistic research to widen our imagination capacity. MYCKET will share the story of how we formed a pack with urban planners Eljesa Kasa and Sofie Nilsson, Haninge municipality, and Max Goldstein, urban designer at Landskapslaget and co-created the new plan for Norra Folkparken.

Regaining creativity by relearning the act of writing
By switching the pencil to his left hand, Mats Kempe had to learn how to form the alphabetic letters all over again. Together with Olof Zachrisson, PhD in Clinical Neuroscience, and visual artist Patrik Stensson, Kempe set out to discover if the creativity and the actual texts could be influenced in a prosperous way by activating new parts of the brain and write under new collaborating circumstances.
Peripatetics as a creative / critical form for learning
This presentation will offer a brief overview of a series of walking and / as learning projects conducted collaboratively between 2003-2008.
12:00-13:00 Lunch break
13:00-14:15 Parallel Workshops x3
WORKSHOP A (ENG)
Venue: Tiny house on wheels at entrance to M-hus
Co-creating a research course on artistic grounds for LNU-staff members
Mathilda Tham, Matilda Plöjel, Marie Sterte and Åsa Ståhl
Our vision is a research course on artistic grounds at MA-level open to staff at Linnaeus University where one’s own artistic practice is the starting point for a broader and deeper learning journey. We invite you to help shape this course by suggesting research activities, learning objectives and forms of examination. To make this course relevant for you, we wish to hear about your practice, as well as your dreams and worries about the integration of artistic research and education in the university.
WORKSHOP B (SWE)
Venue: M-hus lobby and outdoors
Nature/human performative experience-making
Welcome to take part in a research creation workshop that aims to continue to be unknowing enough to find new knowledge. Questions that deal with a relational, critical, and post-humanist perspective on the nature/culture dichotomy is carried through the workshop. As well as questions of how artistic and pedagogical positions/stances and processes can work in relation to transformation and human change concerning the climate and species extinction crisis. The aim is to continue a conversation and collective reflection about forest/nature and human.
WORKSHOP C (ENG)
Venue: M-hus lobby and outdoors
The sensing body as the activist
How can the body be catalyst for producing thought and become a transformative resource, and the quality of our presence a form of activism and source for change-making? By engaging in a choreographic walking practice relating to the human and more than human collective you are invited to a joint exploration of the same. The workshop invites for dialogue on the potential of artistic research and methods produced by research in relation to cross-overs with other fields of practice. As example, it will share the contribution to a recent book publication on regenerative leadership (Ledelse af Transformationer på Kanten - 14 regenerative og kreative metoder. Edited by Morten Svalgaard and Christa Breum Amhøj, Dansk Psykologisk Forlag 2023)
14:00-14:30 Performative Fika, ‘Seasonal Expectations’ by The Hungry Collective
