Resonating knowledges is an areas of research I’m currently invested in.
It has developed from and entails parts of my research on processes of composing-performing, which investigates non-linear temporalities in the interweaving of the performative arts. It further examines, how these processes are interconnected with queer, feminist and gender-non-conforming aesthetic designs.
Resonating knowledges takes the project to another plane by shedding light on the researcher’s position in these investigations. Projects with innovative realizations of the composing-performing relation are often connected to forms of artistic research (whether labelled as such or not). This challenges the usual relation between researcher and artist(s), which is why new relational models need to be designed.
This research has been funded by the Bavarian State Program for the Promotion of Women in Academic Research and Teaching at Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany, and is currently continued within the framework of Pia Palme’s Fragility of Sound-Project at University and Performing Arts, Graz, Austria.
So far, this research has been conducted on different occasions within different frameworks in the German, Belgian and Austrian Experimental Music and Conceptual Dance Scenes.
A first milestone was a workshop/symposium called Gender on Stage in 2018, organized and curated together with Dr. Katharina Rost and Dr. Rainer Simon, which brought together academic researchers and artists. This workshop and the related publication Staging Gender (transcript 2019) was funded by the Programme for Gender and Diversity at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg.
