Coutts, Nicky, 2015, Conference or Workshop, Unlearning at Art as Research...Research as Art, Leicester, UK, 11 Nov 2015.
|Abstract or Description:||
Keynote speaker for a one day symposium in Fine Art and Photography at De Montfort University, Leicester.
Coutts' keynote looked at the concept of 'Unlearning' used by Marie Luisa Knott to explore what Hannah Arendt first had to do in order to rethink the atrocities carried out by the Nazis in the 20th Century. To be able to think anew means also to find a means for undoing what has previously been thought. Coutts looked to Arendt amongst other thinkers and artists, and used examples from within her own practice, to reflect on rigour in research and methods for legitimising a range of visual practices.
