Cătălin Gheorghe – Ways of criticality and creativity. Argument for research

Critical theories of artistic research:

Henk Slager – Doing Aesthetics

Andrea Phillips – Why practice-based PhDs are political

Mick Wilson – Dead Public: An unfinished enquiry into public-ness, political imagination and the agency of mortal beings

Michael Baers – Vagaries and Vacillations: Some reflections on the making of An Oral History of Picasso in Palestine

Creative practices of artistic research:

Michael Baers – An Oral History of Picasso in Palestine (excerpt)

Michelle Teran – Future Guides: From information to home. Folgen

Flis Holland – Articulating a point of view

Rachel Mader – Narrating Structures: On how to write analytically on walking experiences, digital self-representation and fragmentary archives in contemporary arts

Jesper Alvær – Staging dislocation: Notes on finished and unfinished work


The conception and the structure of this publication is highlighting a possible understanding of artistic research from the perspective of using key concepts and the intervention methods of critical theory (in the way it is understood in the history and theory of contemporary art, instead of the way it is understood in philosophy), as well as from the perspective of the product of artistic research, as a work of art produced by former or current PhD candidates involved in artistic research doctoral programmes.
