PhD and Postdoc Projects
Jane Jin KaisenPhD Student
The working title of my PhD project in artistic research is Translational Aesthetics.
Taking outset in my artistic practice that evolves around the workings of memory and entangled transnational histories that resonate in the present moment, I am developing a notion of translational aesthetics as an artistic research method and aesthetics of resistance.
Through film, video -and archive installations, discursive events and writing, I explore with my PhD project a notion of translation as an artistic strategy and multi-layered aesthetic that may function as a prism for critical and self-reflexive dialogue.
