Introduction to Artistic [Practice Based] Research, Prof. Ana Sánchez-Colberg

November 21-23, via zoom, language: English, 3ECTS (full participation)

Organizers: Estonian Graduate School of Culture Studies and Arts, Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre

The seminars offer participants an introduction to the specific paradigm of ‘artistic research’.


November 21, 14.00-17.00

Session 1:   we will discuss the key terms that serve as the critical framework to understand the specificity of the activity undertaken as ‘artistic research’.

  • What is practice?
  • What is research?
  • What is artistic research and how does it differ from other modes of scholarly inquiry?

November 22, 14.00-17.00

Session 2: In Day 1 we established the critical framework, in this seminar we will consider the implication of pursuing artistic research in relation to:

  • The exposition of the research
  • The methods of the research.
  • The concepts and compositional issues that arise from the process

November 23, 14.00-17.00

Session 3: we will explore the frame of ‘phenomenology’ as a ‘metaframe’ that underpins aspects of artistic research in its re-evaluation of the triadic relationship between artist/object and its ‘audience/public’, central to artistic research.

The seminars are delivered online; through breakout rooms the group will work on practical tasks as well as engaged in peer-to-peer dialogue.
