Focus on research

From Zero to Nothing, Royal Conservatoire Antwerp & Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

The Royal Conservatoire and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp (AP University College) are productive research institutions in the field of the arts. The AP Schools of Arts have jointly developed a research policy encouraging, supporting, representing and reinforcing artists, researchers and research groups. Researchers in the arts contribute to society by performing excellent research in an international context, expanding art practices and innovating art education. Exhibitions, performances and (artist) publications such as Track Report and FORUM+ are the main channels for disseminating research outcomes.

Fascinating border crossing projects emerge when research “in”, “with” and “on” the arts meet. The various research groups at the Royal Conservatoire and the Royal Academy promote a transdisciplinary approach by facilitating collaborations. From Zero to nothing is an excellent example of such a transdisciplinary research project.

From Zero to Nothing: Investigating historical performance practice in Stockhausen’s works from the Sixties examines the relations between performing arts, visual arts and eastern spirituality in the context of the careers of avant-gardists Mary Bauermeister, Rolf Gehlhaar and Karlheinz Stockhausen. The specific performance practices for iconic works as Prozession (1967) and Solo (1965-’66) are examined and related to the Zero-art scene in Germany, with the help and expertise of research group ARCHIVOLT. Furthermore, the “happening” as artistic concept is reinterpreted in a contemporary context.

As outcome of the project From Zero to Nothing, main researcher and flutist Karin de Fleyt organised a Stockhausen Symposium in collaboration with the Royal Conservatoire, the Royal Academy, HERMESensemble and the Orpheus Institute. Guest speakers included art historians as well as a video artist, various performers and composers. There was an open rehearsal, a lecture afternoon and an evening concert in order to connect different art forms and research traditions and make the transdisciplinary research tangible to a broad audience.
