Towards An Anthropological (Post Artistic) Practice

Converging art and everyday life through 1:1 scale projects, post-artistic practices reconfigure dialectics between disciplines, thus resembling the integrated societies anthropologists traditionally studied. Bandliens collaboration with the collectives HAiKw/, Blank Mountain College and Department for Usership constitutes the empirical backdrop for her reflections on epistemological issues related to such new forms of interdisciplinarity – and ontological issues related to post-artistic practices. The talk is based on articulations of Bandlien's practice set forth as invited guest editor of a special issue of the Norwegian journal KunstogKulturon “art and anthropology”, published by the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design and Universitetsforlaget (forthcoming December 2016).
