Artistic Research

Nowadays, advanced art education is in the process of developing research programs throughout Europe. The project 'Artistic Research' will delve into the question of that research and also investigate related subject matters. After all, research as such is often understood as a method stemming from the alpha, beta, and gamma sciences directed towards knowledge production and the development of a certain scientific domain. How is artistic research connected with those types of scientific research, taking into account that the artistic domain so far has tended to continually exceed the modernistic parameters of knowledge management? One could claim that the artistic field comprises the hermeneutic questions of the humanities,the experimental method of the sciences, and the societal commitment of the social sciences. Will that knowledge influence the domain, the methodology, and the outcome of 'artistic research'? Another main topic concerns not only the specificity of the object of knowledge of 'artistic research' but above all whether and how 'artistic research' and its institutional programs will influence
topical visual art, its artworks and its exhibitions.
