We see artistic research as a condition for innovative artistic work. Artistic Research is compared to scientific, scholarly and applied research an experienced based form of gaining knowledge. We are collaborating with universities and other research institutes and are involved in the professional exchange with artist researchers, scientists and scholars of various disciplines.

We consider as basis of our research aesthetic sensing and artistic experience. With their engagement we elaborate methods and formats of producing, discussing and publishing artistic knowledge.
