Montañas en Resistencia (Mountains in Resistance)

A series of lectures and online conversations, exploring the possibilities and intersections between art, activism and academic research, to recognize mountains as living bodies. The series is developed in chapters that go from the experience of the body and the social and political contexts of resistance, to a conceptualization of the possibility of future life around and together with mountains; proposing connections of care between human bodies, mountains, glaciers and rock formations.

Initiated by Amanda Piña, coordinated by Alessandro Questa and developed within the framework of THIRDTalks. Realized in collaboration with Cecilia Vallejos, Victoria Uranga and Miguel A López.

Languages: Spanish and English

On Writing

This series of conversations explores writing praxes in the expanded field of artistic research. Poets, scholars and transdisciplinary artists share their insights on the making of writing and how they make this immanent to their various art projects.

Publishing and/as Artistic Practice

In January 2022 THIRD organized the Mini Fieldings Forum, an online programme around their recently published book on artistic research Fieldings – Propositions for 3rd Cycle Research in the Performing Arts. We discussed questions and shared examples of publishing artistic practices and publishing as an artistic practice in a round table conversation. We asked our guests Koleka Putuma, Erin Manning and Florian Dombois to reflect on the potential of publishing and/as artistic practice in a THIRDtalk.

About THIRD

About THIRD

THIRD is a peer-to-peer support structure for artistic research and practice research in the arts at an advanced level. Our facilitating model is designed as a two-year trajectory for seven fellows to undertake research. These fellows form a group of companions (previously named cohorts) supporting and nourishing each others’ research through regular, cyclical encounters in practices. Accompanied by two tutors, companions meet four times a year for four-days quarterlies during which they experiment with ways of sharing their practice research, ways of responding, and ways of knowing. Additionally, there is research space and time for a three-week residency in the summer. This process supports artists in undertaking long-term practice-led research and/or preparing for further developments through research fellowship programs, PhDs, or other fitting contexts.
