The University of the Arts Helsinki is organising a Research Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale. The first pavilion in the history of the biennale to be dedicated to research will consist of an international contemporary art exhibition and a platform for events, both featuring artistic research. The dynamic between artistic research and contemporary art will be explored through the theme of experimentality.

The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is a free online, peer- reviewed journal for the publication and discussion of artistic research. The journal is published by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR), an independent, non-profit association.

JAR publishes research in a manner that respects artists’ modes of presentationand incorporates web-enabled possibilities for a mix of media, collaboration, debate and discussion. The journal promotes experimental approaches to both ‘writing’ and ‘reading’ research, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal. Submissions are welcome from across and between disciplines, from artists worldwide, with or without academic affiliation.

On May 19th, theatre director and member of the editorial board of the Journal for Artistic Research, Julian Klein, will present the journal and answer questions about artistic research.
