How do we intervene photographically in the Arctic and Antarctic regions? The polar history has many examples of photographers and artists traveling to the Arctic region and Antarctica. Due to environmental change, the last two decades has seen a rise in Art and Science expeditions to these regions. 

During this event we will unravel various artistic research approaches by some of our network researchers who have worked specifically with glacial landscapes. We will encourage a discussion around the purpose of these practices and highlight why it may be of significance to our understanding of climate change, and how we can further act on positive actions.

  • The symposium is initiated, organised and hosted by HDK/Valand, Gothenburg University (Sweden), Massey University, Wellington (New Zealand) and the University of Plymouth (UK).
  • Timings: 09:00-11:00 (UK), 09:00-12:00 (Sweden), 21:00-00:00 (New Zealand).
  • Keynote: Observation through practice: fieldwork and collaborations | Tyrone Martinsson, Gorki Glaser Müller, Erik Schytt Mannerfelt.
