14 Henk Borgdorff, Amsterdam » Positioning Artistic Research « Reykjavik, 3 October 2008 Artistic Research Academic Research Research: ‘Original investigation undertaken in order to gain knowledge and understanding’ Questions, problems, issues Context (art world, art discourse) Methods Outcome: presentation, documentation, dissemination What? Why? How? What form? Liberalised understanding of ‘research’: Dublin Descriptors: “The word [research] is used in an inclusive way to accommodate the range of activities that support original and innovative work in the whole range of academic, professional and technological fields, including the humanities, and traditional, performing, and other creative arts. It is not used in any limited or restricted sense, or relating solely to a traditional 'scientific method‘.”

22 Henk Borgdorff, Amsterdam » Positioning Artistic Research « Reykjavik, 3 October 2008 Artistic Research Art Education Level of competence: bachelor, master, doctorate Research Training in the Creative and Performing Arts and Design UKCGE 2001 (www.ukcge.ac.uk)  Research Environment  Research Seminars  Research Training Programme Content  Admission  Supervision  Assessment

23 Henk Borgdorff, Amsterdam » Positioning Artistic Research « Reykjavik, 3 October 2008 Artistic Research Art Education Research environment A range of research programmes across the creative and performing arts Access to research resources (books, on-line text and images, artefacts, collections etc.) An active programme of professional practice (concerts, exhibitions, readings, performances and presentations) A range of opportunities for presentation, discussion and debate (lecture series, seminar series, colloquia, conferences etc.) Properly resourced working facilities (workstation, materials, IT provision, access to basic office and study requirements: e.g. photocopier, phone) Discussions with a range of significant others: practitioners in the field, peers, supervisors and individuals with expertise and experience at the interface between theory and practice Collaborative arrangements between departments or institutions

24 Henk Borgdorff, Amsterdam » Positioning Artistic Research « Reykjavik, 3 October 2008 Artistic Research Art Education Seminars to share problems to heighten awareness of models and opportunities at the interface between theory and practice in the particular field to heighten awareness of breadth and depth (levels) of study to develop necessary vocabularies for debate to conceptualise relations between theory and practice as a part of the problem-solving process to build confidence to provide examples of effective research practice (i.e. by discussing already successful […] projects with their authors) to engage with interdisciplinarity: (how the research interfaces with the wider field of academic enquiry)

25 Henk Borgdorff, Amsterdam » Positioning Artistic Research « Reykjavik, 3 October 2008 Artistic Research Art Education Training Programme Content How to devise a research project Understanding the subject area as a field of systematic enquiry Contextualising the research in a form appropriate to the subject Introduction to a range of methods/methodologies in the context of their appropriateness for the particular research project and subject area Research skills and techniques matched to the subject Understanding the iterative process, or the process of continuous redefinition Models for comparative study particularly of existing, successful PaR projects Understanding the possible relationships and tension between practice, theory and criticism General and specialised presentation skills Systems and options for documenting practice Continued development of artistic and performance skills as appropriate to the subject Structuring a thesis to incorporate practice and its documentation
