PARSE joins with Afterall Exhibition Histories and the existing association with Asia Art Archive and the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College in the ongoing programme of research, publications, symposia and talks, committed to presenting a plurality of voices and critical perspectives, while bringing archival and other primary materials to bear on current and future practice.

UmArts Research Centre at Umeå University

UmArts Research Centre at Umeå University

UmArts Research Centre at Umeå University and PARSE are collaborating to publish an issue on Hurricanes and Scaffolding for Winter 2025 in English. This issue will be based on the critical papers submitted to the Artistic Research Symposium in December 2024 organized by the Swedish Research Council in close collaboration with UmArts. The theme “Hurricanes and Scaffoldings’ explores the dynamic interplay between more-than-human forces and culturally resilient structures. And are inspired by curator Nora N. Khan’s essay “Towards a poetics of Artificial Super Intelligence” in which she, among other things, develops the ideas of the hurricane as a non-human force and the scaffolding as an open and resilient cultural infrastructure, enabling creative, complex and intelligent systems to take shape.
