Arts, Autonomy and the Public Sphere

How does art become relevant? And what does it mean to claim that artists create knowledge? Engagement and artistic research are the themes of the Research Centre for Arts, Autonomy and the Public Sphere.

We develop artistic research as an experimental, intimate ethnography in which systematic sensitivity for the world is fundamental. We stimulate work that explores the riches hidden between opposing clichés about art, society, politics, academia and research. The centre thus functions as an ordinary ánd a contrary part of the academy of Arts of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences.

The research centre has its own website
