The Artistic Research Community is a dialectic umbrella organization for explorative research-creation, composed by a network of independent artist-researchers and knowledge institutions in the north of the Netherlands. The network aims to stimulate artistic and explorative research practices and its impact by focusing on: how different forms of artistic research can be performed, articulated, presented and documented. What are the processes involved in these practices and what are their inherent qualities as means of investigating the ins and outs of the multiverse.
How artistic research practice can offer novel ways of producing knowledge, applicable to various fields, as well as how such practices might catalyze new forms of knowing and producing knowledge in ways that sidestep traditional dichotomies existing between art (technê) and science (Epistêmê).
ARC is initiated by Dr. Anke Coumans, with the support of the professorships of the knowledge center Art & Society and the RE:search:gallery.
