This can only be thought of as a monologue within a dialogue

Curated by Suzanne van der Lingen & Claire Walsh, This can only be thought of as a monologue within a dialogue* was an all-day event that explored the theme of ‘autofiction’, expanding on ideas relating to their 2016 MAP guest editorship. The event included a talk, a screening of artist moving image, and live work by artists selected from an open call which asked for submissions of work relating to autofiction or representations of the self by other methods, in the form of, but not limited to, poetry, prose, monologue, dialogue, video, audio and performance. Presented at Edinburgh College of Art as part of the Friday Lecture Series on 24 March, 2017.

The School of Art Friday Lectures are a public series of talks by leading national and international artists and thinkers. For the 2016-17 series, the lectures focused around the School’s research clusters: Futurity, Material, Narrative, Sexes and Temporality. The School of Art’s practice-led research embodies and critically reflects upon new registers of contemporary art, whilst rearticulating processes and practices associated with established artistic media. Contributors to this series of talks included: Corin Sworn; Martin Herbert; Hannah Sawtell; Bisan Abu-Eisheh; Lisa Robertson & Sophie Collins; Lucy Soutter; Dee Heddon; Melanie Gilligan; Filipa Ramos; Kenny Hunter; Cosey Fanni Tutti & Dave Keenan; David Sherry; and Suzanne van der Lingen & Claire Walsh. The 2016-17 talks were programmed by Maria Fusco, Chancellor’s Fellow & Reader at the University of Edinburgh.
