Call For Papers

10th April 2018

With art as research becoming an established paradigm in art education, several questions arise. How do we educate young artists to actively engage in the production of knowledge and aesthetic experiences in an expanded field? What are some of the role models that we can look to when we speak about hybrid practices and artistic research? How do we best prepare students to carry out their own artistic research? What can we space in the curriculum to accommodate a changed learning, making, and research landscape? And how is teaching “art” different from teaching “artistic research”? What particular abilities and competencies should a teacher of artistic research have?


The conference seeks contributions that respond to these questions through a variety of short presentations, theoretical reflections, analyses, case studies, performative lectures hands-on workshops and poster presentations. We invite practitioners and theoreticians from the fields of artistic research and arts/design to share their perspectives, expertise, and knowledge. The conference, which will take place in Vienna, is being organized jointly by the University of Applied Arts Vienna and Teachers College, Columbia University in New York. We particularly encourage submissions from young professionals and graduate students. Our goal is to create a supportive space for open, lively, and inclusive discussion.
