More than a dozen researches, theorists and artists will share insights into a range of projects, all connected to aspects of the prefix "trans-" with its range of meanings from "across" and "beyond" to "on the opposite side". The symposium will explore further acts of translation through short papers and alternative forms of presentation such as performance-lectures. Presenters explore new modes of communication and exchange, the spaces in which knowledge is formed, produced and disseminated, challenge forms and paradigms through which artistic research operates, and reflect on the deeper consequences of changing something to something else.
