Research

Former Honours Programme (now Honours Lab) and Radboud University meet musician Lavinia Meijer

Research at ArtEZ is defined by who we are – as individuals, and as a collective. We are a critical, collaborative, and creative community in which professorships, centres of expertise, (master's) education and ArtEZ studium generale, ArtEZ Business Centre and ArtEZ Press join in addressing urgent and emergent questions of our times. We approach artistic research as a transformative practice to create meaningful and caring engagements for a future of humane and ethical possibilities.

Research

Making Other Kinds of Futures

The Research Manifesto is a call for action, for the communities that we work with, and for ourselves, to engage with the social, technological, embodied, affective, and material transformations of our practice.

ArtEZ Research Manifesto

Professorships

The professorships at ArtEZ are structural interventions to create an intellectual movement that addresses the key idea of ‘Another is Possible’: another future, another emotion, another idea, another life, another us.

Research and research community

A lively research community flourishes by providing space for many different forms of research, by developing a curious and critical attitude, by changing perspectives and by testing your own research against that of others. At ArtEZ, this happens in projects, publications and programmes of:

Master's programmes

The ArtEZ Master's programmes form a critical community of change makers in a world in transformation. A creative community of seekers and finders with the in-between space as a response to new realities. A passionate community of motivated learners, daring to make the difference.

At ArtEZ, this is how we see the role of research in the arts and our Master's programmes: practicing and exploring possible futures in reality, venturing critically and embracing the artistic experiment, communicating this in the exciting and ever-changing context of global society with energy and vision.

Honours Lab

Students in all years and from all disciplines can apply for the Honours Lab, that is designed for art students who seek for prospects and challenges beyond their known creative territory. The Honours Lab encourages to better articulate visions and to situate work in a broader context. It provides a basis for further research – artistic, academic or otherwise.

Research and experimentation

Research also consists of experimenting and trying new things, such as new technologies. What can they contribute to music, fashion or the development of products? The answer is ‘a great deal’, as is evident from the various projects and workshops that have taken place at ArtEZ in recent years. In ArtEZ’s own research laboratory, ArTechLab, students of all disciplines are able to conduct experiments – often in collaboration with universities and companies..
