The seminar focus on theory relating to artistic research. At the seminar, we discuss the origins and historical development of artistic research. Different national and international models for artistic research will be presented and discussed, with particular emphasis on what is distinctive about ‘The Norwegian Model’.
What is the difference between research into, for and through the arts? What is the connection between artistic research and artistic practice? Which research topics and questions are dealt with in artistic research and what characterises knowledge production? Key concepts in artistic research – nationally and internationally – are also elaborated on.
