This symposium presents research activity by members of the KABK teaching community with a particular emphasis on practice-led research that uses art and design either as its subject matter or means for investigation. It will feature some of the projects being developed through the current KABK Research Groups, alongside contributions from invited keynote speakers in thematic groupings:

  • Framing and Reframing Archives;
  • Performing Bodies;
  • Re-imagining Operations; and
  • Queering Art and Design Pedagogies.

The symposium seeks to identify approaches, methods and tools with broader application to the growing research culture at KABK and beyond.
