‘Research as Practice, Practice as Research’ is a three-day workshop on research-based practices, that will consider both the embodied forms of research generated by studio and performance practices, and the discursive forms of research that feed into or are presented as artistic practices. On day one, we’ll think about what ‘research’ does or can mean in the specific context of art, and how the uses of research in other disciplines inform the uses of research in art; on day two, we’ll trace some possible genealogies for and look at examples of current research-based practices, and discuss research techniques; and on day three, we’ll discuss the practical, conceptual and formal effects of working on long-term projects, while participants will be asked to present for group critique and discussion either a long-term research based project already in progress, or several ideas for research-based projects to be undertaken in future.
