Over the past two decades, the Art of Research conferences have had a significant role in promoting continuous dialogue and fruitful convergence between art- and design-related research practices. The conferences have contributed to the development of rapidly growing and spreading contemporary discourse on artistic and practice-led research – while acknowledging and engaging in multiple notions of research where diverse modes of creative practice are used as catalysts for enquiry.
This is the sixth in the Art of Research conference series, the first of which took place in Helsinki in 2005. The conference is co-organized at Aalto University by the Department of Design, the Department of Film, Television and Scenography and the Department of Art, in the School of Arts, Design and Architecture.
