Methodological un-twinings with kindergarten-and research studies

The research group interest is concerned with how methodologies settle and expand possibilities of experimentation. The research group support a flat ontology where both human and more-than-human are active research agents.

The research standpoint is to expand more-than-anthropocentric’ positionings, not degrading or defining humans as less interesting – more to explore how agentic entities work together, entangled in relations. By emphasizing more-than-human-organism and objects, we ask how these entities work on each other and produce new ongoing knowledges.

The research group is influenced by philosophical concepts and creative performative processes in research. This open for artistic experimental possibilities where discursive and material elements, affects and vibrant matter are entangled. Interdisciplinary, philosophy and ethics of response-ability in an Anthropocene-era era is situating our research interests.
