Day 3: Sunday 28 August

Archipelago Centre Korpoström, Korpo

Archipelago Think Tank

Launch of Archipelago Think Tank that will continue the work of CAA in the form of multidisciplinary exchange and research, based in Turku Archipelago yet reflecting on the Baltic Sea and beyond: CAA will invite participants across different fields of art and science to four retreats on remote islands during 2012-13. Archipelago is, however, not considered in terms of islands of enclosure, detachment, or origin. Rather the retreats aim at dialogue and production of knowledge that follow the decentred archipelago logic. CAA will then create a publication as well as a virtual archive and forum for the research and art works born out of the think tank process.

The day focuses on different emerging methods of crossdisciplinary research and collaborative practices, where contemporary art and other investigative arts have a notable role. The aim is to critically reflect on and argue for the potential of the arts as a platform or catalyst for and research within debates across fields of specialisation.
