DARE 2015 – The Dark Precursor - is the first international conference entirely dedicated to the relation between artistic research, French philosopher Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. Choosing as its title the concept of ‘dark precursor,’ the conference reflects the duality and openness inherent to artistic research. Deleuze appropriated this expression from meteorology, where it designates a stage in a cloud-to-ground lightning sequence. In line with the theme of the ‘dark precursor’, the conference convenors are particularly interested in receiving proposals for scholarly and artistic presentations that investigate this relation.
DARE 2015 welcomes presentations ranging from academic to artistic in modalities, including performative, collaborative, interactive, visual, new media, installations etc. Proposals, written either in English or French, should be submitted through the conference online submission system. Scholarly presentations are limited to 30 minutes including Q&A, while duration and form of artistic presentations will be considered case by case.
To submit your outline of presentation, please visit: dare2015.exordo.com and follow the simple on-screen instructions provided (you will be required to set up an account first).
The closing date for submissions is Wednesday, 1 July 2015 (extended).
- After the submissions are closed, the Editorial Board will peer-review submissions and notify authors by Friday, 17 July 2015.
- All accepted abstracts will be published open-access on the conference website and presentations at DARE 2015 will be video recorded for documenting and archiving purposes.
