ResCen Research Centre was founded in 1999 as an artist-focused hub at Middlesex University (now located within the School of Media and Performing Arts) for the purpose of inquiring into the work of artists in the art world and how this can be explored and disseminated through public discourse and publications.

“In Medias ResCen: Sustaining the Creative Moment after 15 Years of Art Making and Reflecting” is a chance for fellow artists, researchers and audiences to get an update about the track record and current conditions of ResCen and its Associate Artists. The seminar will focus on the navigation of time as a changing, challenging and creative factor, explore the topical circumstances of creative practices under the new pressures of the arts marketplace and how it is possible to create new routes for art making in and between the art world, higher education, creative industries and the public sphere. The seminar will be followed by a generous question and answer session.

The seminar attendees will be welcomed by Professor Christopher Bannerman, Head of ResCen.

Introducer and moderator: Ola Johansson, Reader in Contemporary Performance Practice at ResCen.

Light refreshments will be served after the seminar.
