News: Anne Le Troter
Résidence Institut Suisse de Rome

SAKS is glad to announce Anne Le Troter will be in residency at the Swiss Institute in Rome starting October 2014 !

Studio Roma is a transdisciplinary research program by the Istituto Svizzero di Roma, offering study grants to young artists and researchers, fellowship, international mobility support and visiting scholar, oriented to experiment new pedagogical practices in artistic and scientific production.
Studio Roma is the metropolitan ‘artist’s studio’. A place of production, transformation and work to find out the role and potential of art and of different kinds of knowledge. Studio Roma combines and sustains the mutual interdependence of three forms of knowledge: science (epistéme), practice (pràxis) and production (poiesis). This approach offers a radical alternative to those based on a disciplinary perspective. A non-linear path that grasps the grammar of paradox and highlight at times decisive frictions, to explore an epistemology of multiple trajectories, to problematize the present instead of the repetition of easy answers.
The goal is to get beyond the narrow disciplinary divisions and the segmentation of academic knowledge that in the system of education separate those who know from those who do not (yet) know. Studio Roma wants to assert new qualitative and intensive hierarchies that are not the mere reproduction of what is already given; differential relationships, beyond the polarizations between art and science, education and research, formal and informal knowledge. This method triggers productive relations between different fields of application, laying the groundwork for a knowledge capable of having effects, implications and concrete openings.
The goal is to define a new meaning of excellence in the production of knowledge, seen as the capacity to connect highly distributive models of communication and intensive forms of cooperation.
Studio Roma is a territory that goes beyond the classic places of institutional education, the model for an transnational research institute of the arts, culture and the sciences.
