Short description

One of the issues figuring prominently in the debate about research in the arts is: When does art practice count as research? Can criteria perhaps be formulated that can help to differentiate art practice-in-itself from art practice-as-research? How does artistic research differ from what is called academic or scientific research?

Course content

One of the issues figuring prominently in the debate about research in the arts is: When does art practice count as research? Can criteria perhaps be formulated that can help to differentiate art practice-in-itself from art practice-as-research? How does artistic research differ from what is called academic or scientific research?
During the course ‘Research in the arts’ insight is offered in a wide variety of methodologies of artistic research and in the recent debate about artistic research. Students are offered examples of basic methodologies of research. There will be an introduction to academic language use and concrete cases of artistic research in dance are presented, analysed and discussed. Moreover students are encouraged to position and reflect upon their own artistic research in the broader field of artistic research.
