"Artistic work can often be understood as research, even if its methodology is different from that of science. The exhibition "A Portrait of the Artist as a Researcher 2.0" is a plea for the recognition of the specificity of artistic research, and for the art academy as a place of free artistic research, beyond the limits of the market, beyond all academic norms – even after ‘Bologna’.

The exhibition shows a selection of works that are the result of artistic research. These works show the artist at work as a researcher, investigating the history of an art institution (Sven Augustijnen), or of cultural practices (Sonia Boyce), collecting and selecting thoughts (Herman Asselberghs), or cultural products (Jacques André), experimenting with sound (Art Jones), or image (Ina Wudtke), representing the artist as a social scientist (Jill Magid), or the philosopher as an artist (Dieter Lesage). In this way, these works comment, circle around or criticise the discourse on ‘research’ that is characteristic of the Bologna Process and interrogate the limits of its applicability for the arts.

"A Portrait of the Artist as a Researcher 2.0" will serve as a platform for a symposium on ‘artistic research’ on Friday 14 March 2008, from 14.00-20.00 in Brussels.

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
