Residency 23 - 'Understanding intelligence'

Artistic field:

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

What is intelligence? Can intelligence be owned, given or lost? Does it arise from our genes or our environment, or some mixture of both? Who can be thought of as intelligent and who is excluded from this category? How have science, society and art historically been dealing with intelligence - and how could they?

Residency 23, Understanding intelligence,  invites a multidisciplinary group of artists, scientists, and others to explore concepts and constructs of intelligence.

Intelligence seems to be a key value in human societies, especially in modern Western ones. It is often presented as a cornerstone of what it is to be human: a primary characteristic of our species. However, the study of other-than-human creatures has brought discussions about intelligent pigs, crows and octopuses to the dinner table, sometimes only to suggest that these animals are intelligent exactly like (or even more than) humans. When a capacity of mind is regularly denied of animals, especially of farm animals, one wonders if this is not least to soothe consciences around humans’ habitual behaviour towards other beings.

Once it comes to structuring human societies, specific concepts of intelligence and intelligence testing procedures penetrate several institutions: education systems, professional bodies’ examinations and assessment, healthcare systems’ definitions of intellectual disability, legal measures relating to mental health, intellectual capacity and individual responsibility. Further, notions of intelligence shape and are shaped by popular culture, for instance through portrayals of geeks, geniuses or the neuro-atypical. This is not without controversy. Intelligence measures and testing (for example via IQ scores) have operated historically to exclude, discriminate against and harm humans themselves, most specifically people already marginalised by their presumed gender, race, ethnicity or sexuality.  Concepts of intelligence and procedures for measuring intelligence have thus legitimately been under scrutiny for more than a century.

This residency asks how constructs of intelligence are measured, used and abused, and how changing understandings of human and more-than-human worlds might require radical redefinitions. Through creative engagement with concepts of human and other-than-human intelligence, intelligence testing and the resources of existing research projects, the residency aims to stimulate new understandings of intelligence through dialogue and creative activity. The residents will explore questions of control, freedom and access, and how lines are drawn between the pathological and the normal, nature and culture, and human and animal. 

Residency 23, Understanding intelligence is developed in collaboration with the University of Oslo (UiO) research project Historicizing intelligence: Tests, metrics and the shaping of contemporary society, which is based at the Museum of Cultural History, at its department Museum of University History (MUV).  Historicizing intelligence examines how the scientific research object “intelligence” and related testing technologies have come into being through transnational exchanges, how they have acquired various roles and functions in Norway, and how intelligence measurements are woven into relations of authority and legitimacy. Residents will have the opportunity to engage both with a multidisciplinary research team of historians, social anthropologists, science and technology scholars, jurists, and educationalists, and with materials in the historical collection on intelligence testing at the University of Oslo.

Residents will also have the opportunity to engage with work on human-animal relationships that is part of the research project MEATigation: Towards sustainable meat-use in Norwegian food practices for climate mitigation, based at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, and partly at the University of Oslo.

Prize Summary: 
3000 NOK stipend
Prizes Details: 

This residency is free of charge and offers comfortable accommodation for non-Oslo based residents in central Oslo. Local residents will continue to live at their usual address. The residency community will regularly come together at PRAKSIS and other locations, and at events and meals.

Selected international participants receive a stipend of 3000 NOK (approximately €300) towards additional costs.

POV zine - digital interdisciplinary art zine / open call: femme fragile

Artistic field:

Country:

Eligibility:

POV [POINT OF VIEW] is a self-published digital zine. It features projects of different disciplines that circulate the thematic focus of each publication. The idea of creating a zine was born out of a desire to give artists an independent platform for support and expression. A (digital) place to come together in uncertain and disconnected times. Our intention is to create a sustainable platform and space - for artists by artists - for mutual exchange, inspiration, and discussion. With two publications per year - in spring and fall - POV dedicates each issue to a different thematic focus. The next issue will be published in March 2022.

In our next issue, we explore the figure of the femme fragile* and which ideas are behind this concept. »The term femme fragile is the conceptual counterpart of the self-conscious femme fatale.« says Wikipedia. We look at the concept of a femme fragile beyond the "strong-weak" and the submissive male gaze. Is it possible that in fragility lies strength, power, and confidence? Is it possible to simultaneously be weak and strong? Is it possible that this same fragility will be fatal to the patriarchal order? We are seeking content that reflects within the topic of femme fragile on present concerns, solutions, challenges, limitations, possibilities, visions, aesthetics, obsessions, and so on. Tell us what you think, share your feelings and ideas. We are curious about your feminist, personal, planned, spontaneous, practical, or theoretical points of view. We are open to contributions of any format, genre, or discipline. Whether it's a recipe or an essay, a gif or a poem, a movement or a drawing, a spoken message or a photo, or ... - give it a go!
