About the seminar

This second "Methods in Artistic Research" seminar will focus on the communication and relation of artistic research to society.

As a continuation to the last year’s edition, the second “Methods in Artistic Research” seminar will focus on the communication and relation of artistic research to society. The goal of the Method/Art seminar is to explore the common methodologies among researchers of different artistic disciplines, and offer a unique platform for sharing and learning ways of doing artistic research.

The floor is open for paper presentations and lecture-performances that cover the following topics, as well as their expansions and arguments:

  • the interdisciplinary methodologies of communicating and disseminating artistic research, and also, highlighting the different approaches in different artistic disciplines;

  • the pragmatic toolkits for disseminating artistic output for serving different purposes, such as, a large-scale social participation, targeted group interaction, one-to-one conversation etc.;

  • the “what”, “how”, and “why” of relating artistic research to the society and whether such social relation is essential;

  • how to engage the audience in an artistic research project, and how to locate the suitable community for a project;

  • the role, contribution, and value of artistic research in the society.
