PARSE - Platform for Artistic Research Sweden, is an international art and research publishing and conferencing initiative based at the Faculty of Fine, Applied, and Performing arts, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. www.parsejournal.com
During 2018, PARSE is focusing on three separate arcs of research enquiry:
– Art and Work
– Intersectional Engagements
– Migration Re-Making the World
The Art and Work arc, led by Dave Beech, Professor at Valand Academy, explores the intersection of art and work; critical strategies contesting the social imaginary of work, the modernist vision of artistic labour and the artist as worker.
The Intersectional Engagements arc, led by Kristina Hagström-Ståhl, Professor at HSM Academy of Music and Drama, engages with scholarship, artistic research and creative work related to intersectional feminism, decoloniality and queer studies.
The Migration Re-Making the World arc, led by Erling Björgvinsson, Professor HDK Academy of Design and Crafts, explores how the different dimensions of border violence and securitization related to migration are experienced and mediated.
“WHAT DOES WORK LOOK LIKE?”
Time: May 17th, at 16.30-18.30
Place: Valand Academy, in the Glashuset, Chalmersgatan 4-6, Göteborg, Sweden
Welcome to this PARSE Dialogue on Art and work.
Art has been integral to recent debates and critical strategies contesting the social imaginary of work. The modernist vision of artistic labour as the paradigm of nonalienated labour has been replaced by the argument that artists are exemplars of the precarious 24/7 worker. The politics of labour has been replaced with the micropolitics of work and the project to transform work has been replaced with the campaign for the end of work. This Parse Dialogue will focus on difficulties of distinguishing between work and play and how work has been a model for rejuvenating art as a critical form of labour.
,Tom Cubbin Design Historian, Senior Lecturer HDK
Josefine Wikström, Writer and Lecturer DOCH (Stockholm University of the Arts)
Dave Beech, PARSE Professor Valand Academy
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. All welcome!

Time: May 30th, at 16.30-18.30
Place: Marx Memorial Library & Workers’ School, 37A Clerkenwell Green, Clerkenwell, London EC1R 0DU, UK
Welcome to this PARSE dialogue, held in the Marx Memorial Library, London.
Art has been integral to recent debates and critical strategies contesting the social imaginary of work. The modernist vision of artistic labour as the paradigm of nonalienated labour has been replaced by the argument that artists are exemplars of the precarious 24/7 worker. The politics of labour has been replaced with the micropolitics of work and the project to transform work has been replaced with the campaign for the end of work. This event will assess these key contemporary issues of art and work and look at how a politics of work in art can be developed.

Tuija Lindström (1950-2017) played a pivotal role in Swedish photography during the 1990s - a time when new critical perspectives and practises were introduced. She was appointed professor at the Photography School in Gothenburg 1992 and became the first woman in that position. It was a field dominated by men, and where ideas and ideals about masculinity defined the identity of the photographer. Through her own artistic practice and her position as professor and teacher she contributed strongly to redefining and moving the photographic scene in a postmodern direction. This shift was to a large extent influenced by feminist theories and practices, and Tuija Lindström became an import role model and inspiration for coming generations of photographers.
The symposium will highlight Tuija Lindström's work and the historical context of the 1990s. It also has a forward looking approach and the discussion will focus on what the important and critical questions are today, and how to act to make a difference. The keynote speakers are: photographer and artist Elina Brotherus (Finland/France), curator and activist Giulia Casalini (Italy/UK) and artist, model and photographer Arvida Byström (Sweden/USA).
