Hugarflug February 15th - 16th 2019
Hugarflug – the Iceland University of the Arts annual conference was held for the ninth time February 15th-16th 2019.
The conference is a platform for professional and critical debates about the creation of knowledge in and through arts and culture which emphasizes the diversity that characterizes the approaches, methods and mediations in this field.
Teachers and students of the IUA as well as other artists, designers and scholars were encouraged to send their proposals, but one of the main aims of the conference is offering a save space where open questions can be asked, experimentations can unfold and works in process can be presented.
In 2019 we especially encouraged the submitting of proposals related to the theme body/embodiment.
However, the call was not limited to this theme and proposals unrelated to the theme were welcome.
The conference took place in the IUA in Laugarnesvegur 91. No registration was needed as the conference is open to all.
