"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.
