The module “Art-Based Research” focuses on the meeting between artistic experimental practices and academic, analytical methods. The module focuses on the interrelation between theoretical and practical approaches. Arts-based research takes the form of projects based on a set or self-chosen problem formulation or problem field. The projects investigate this interrelation by means of artistic artefacts (e.g. installations, exhibitions, performances, events, etc.) and academic methods such as the production and analysis of empirical data. The module introduces theories related to arts-based research, combined with the practical planning and realization of arts-based research projects.
