Artistic Research

Artistic Research (AR) is an artistic parallel to scholarly research, and has been a joint goal for higher education institutions in Norway since the millennium. The definition of artistic research varies, and the report Vekt på kunst (2007) from the University and University College Council describe it like:

Artistic Research is artistic processes that leads to a public, accessible artistic result. This activity might also include explicit reflection around the development and presentation of the artwork (own translation).

The members create their own artistic research projects, individually or in collaborations. The research group offers a forum for presenting work in progress and discuss content, methodology, quality, artistic process, publication, financing etc.

Our aim is to contribute to a higher artistic standard of AR locally, nationally and internationally, by creating public artworks and participate in the artistic, academic reflection in the field.
