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

Nov 29–Dec 1, via zoom, language: English 

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’.


Monday, November 29, 11.00-14.00

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?

Tuesday, November 30, 11.00-14.00 

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

Wednesday, December 1, 11.00-14.00 

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.
