Faculty of Art and Design to Host Annual Society for Artistic Research Conference
The Society for Artistic Research (SAR) conference will take place at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar from 29 March to 2 April 2022. Artists and theorists from all over the world who are dedicated to the field of artistic research are expected to attend. This is the first time the event will be held in Germany.
The conference organisers are bringing together cutting edge, practice-based research in art and design to discuss the latest developments and explore the different forms of community, both online and in person, and to confront present uncertainties and tensions. The search is on for forward-focused solutions to current social, cultural, environmental and economic challenges brought about by issues such as the pandemic or climate change.
The 13th edition of the international conference will take place both online and in person; a 24-hour online format with presentations and lectures is planned, which will allow discussions to take place across all time zones. A three-day meeting in Weimar will offer the opportunity for intensive sessions, exchange and workshops to take place in person.
It is no coincidence that the meeting is taking place at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar; with its practice-based doctoral programme in »Art and Design«, which offers artists and designers the opportunity to earn a Ph.D., the Faculty of Art and Design plays an influential role. The programme grants students a double qualification with evenly balanced practical and academic components, a degree that is unique in Germany. The three-year study programme is completed with a Ph.D. thesis, which consists of an equal weighting of an academic and an artistic or design component.
The Society for Artistic Research was founded in 2010 in Bern, Switzerland, by artists, researchers and academics from around the world. It is the only international society for artistic research in the world. Members of the society include individuals as well as academic and non-academic institutions from around the world. The Faculty of Art and Design at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has been a member since 2019 and is the organiser of the 13th annual conference. The conference will be held in English.
