Issue #7/Summer 09


The debate on artistic research, emerging worldwide in the field of visual art for some five years now, tends to focus on what artistic research could be or should be. As a consequence of that debate, artistic research, an as-yet undefined sanctuary for creative experiment and knowledge production, is prone to the danger of being absorbed by an intellectually crippling academic discourse on how the specificity of research-based art as a novel modus operandi could be defined and framed.

The project Nameless Science attempts to expand the artistic research debate in connecting it to seven 'best practices' in PhD projects in artistic research. An exhibition at Apexart (New York), a parallel symposium at The Cooper Union (New York), and publications of those events in both ArtandResearch (Glasgow) and MaHKUzine (Utrecht) actually show and discuss the concrete outcomes of those seven artistic research PhD projects.
