The art-based research project Six Formats analyses various formats commonly used in relation to art-based knowledge articulation and/or communication in the present day: publication, lecture-performance, exhibition, symposium, screening, and workshop.

 

Six Formats creates situations of dialogue in, on, and between each of its formats, around a particular theme, and in a particular constellation of a partner institution and a group of participants invited as co-researchers. Each format is a collaborative process of ongoing self-reflection and re-articulation aiming for reciprocal attentiveness to the respective needs of the project and its partners and co-researchers.
