Dialogues between Artistic Research and Science and Technology Studies: An Introduction

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


Artistic research, or research in and through art and design, has gained currency since the 1990s in and beyond higher arts education. The debate on art as research addresses fundamental philosophical questions of epistemology and methodology and issues of artistic agency and autonomy, as well as institutional and educational strategies. Artistic research gained currency in and beyond higher education and research in the last two decades, yet its genealogy can be traced back to the early modern period. The need for hybrid forms of publication and dissemination that do justice to the non-verbal; non-propositional nature of research outcomes is felt both in artistic research and science and technology studies (STS). Musical practices and their technologies has become a research subject in STS as well as in the related field of sound studies. The chapter also presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book.
