Some Awkward Questions: Techno-Arts and Artists in Academic Settings

6.30pm for 7pm Tuesday 3 April 2007

Speaker: Alan Sutcliffe

Nick Lambert's Office (Formerly The CACHe Office)
Birkbeck
43 Gordon Square
London

43 is roughly in the middle of the east side of Gordon Square. The snack bar will be open before the meeting.

Earning money by teaching has been common and honourable for artists, compromising their time but not their art. The role of technology in the arts has brought new academic settings for artists. Art work is subject to the standards of research, and gets distorted. Some conferences and research seem based on naive notions that art is about expression, beauty, emotion and now communication. More like oblique and evocative. Academic freedom and artistic freedom are important and different.
