Fauxthentication: Art Academia and Authorship (or the site-specifics of the Academic Artist)
Stockholm University of the Arts, The Department of Performing Arts.
2020 (English)Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic) [Artistic work]
Abstract [en]

Fauxthentication – Art, Academia, Authorship (or the site-specifics of the Academic Artist) investigates the means of production of the art that can be created within the boundaries of artistic research.

It explores the factors that constitute its value system, who or what can produce these signs of value, and for what reasons.

The project examines the conditions that expose the flaws of the increasingly standardised higher education industry, which artistic research today is a part of, through the use of institutional critique, critical interventions and site-specific case studies.

In a series of performative stagings, Fauxthentication probes the pressures inherent to academic excellence, leading to the grey economy of the higher education industry, that supports and capitalizes on academic fraud, all performed by a global digital proletariat. 
Artistic research is habitually linked to an academised and thus bureaucratised art practice. This project draws critical attention to the risk of it creating its own branch of artistic research art, or ”edu-art”, as well as its own category of artistic research theory; thus prone to becoming self-referential and codified, coagulating into a new ‘ism’ for the initiated. ‘Edu-art-ism’ grapples with artistic quality assessment, systematically addressing solely the theoretical framing of the work.

The Fauxthentication project acknowledges the complexity of the conditions of artistic research by proposing, through its series of explorative stagings, a challenging new way of viewing and hence transforming the very field that it is a part of.

Abstract [sv]

Fauxthentication – Konst, Akademi & Upphovsrätt (eller den akademiska konstnärens platsspecifika omständigheter) undersöker de produktionsramar för konst som skapas inom gränserna för konstnärlig forskning. Framställningen utforskar vilka faktorer som utgör dess värdesystem, vem eller vad som producerar dess värdenormer och av vilka skäl.

Med hjälp av institutionell kritik, metodiska interventioner och platsspecifika fallstudier undersöker projektet de förhållanden som avslöjar brister i den alltmer standardiserade högskoleindustrin som konstnärlig forskning idag är en del av.

I en serie performativa iscensättningar undersöker Fauxthentication det inneboende akademiska prestationstryck som skapar dess svarta marknad, vilken understödjande och exploaterar akademiskt bedrägeri. Denna marknad i allt väsentligt bemannat av ett globalt digitalt proletariat.

Konstnärlig forskning är vanligtvis kopplad till en akademiserad och därmed byråkratiserad konstpraxis. Detta projekt uppmärksammar risken för att denna praxis skapar sin egen gren av konstnärlig forskningskonst, ’edu-art’, såväl som sin egen kategori för konstnärlig forskningsteori. Konstnärlig forskning riskerar därmed att bli självrefererande och kodifierad, stelnande till en ny ‘ism’ för de invigda. ’Edu-art-ismens’ ömma punkt är konstnärlig kvalitetsbedömning, vilket leder till att enbart den teoretiska utformningen av verket adresseras och behandlas systematiskt.

Projektet Fauxthentication erkänner komplexiteten i villkoren för konstnärlig forskning genom att föreslå, via sin serie utforskande iscensättningar, ett utmanande nytt sätt att betrakta och därmed förändra själva fältet som det är en del av.
