Research Environments.

 Reflections on the Value of Artistic Processes

Postgraduate Programmes for artists are on the
increase all over the world. On the one hand, this
constitutes a response by academic institutions to the
need to forge closer connections between art,
science and research. On the other, these
programmes have given rise to complex creative
research environments that provide opportunities to
share, present, evaluate and make use of artistic
processes. Exchanging ideas and articulating and
reflecting on the processes of artistic work have in
recent years started to become a key component of
many postgraduate programmes offered in
international arts education. But what do such
programmes offer in practice? How are art and
science affected when they encounter one another?
What potential does a shift in focus from the end
product to the processes of artistic work offer?
Authors from a range of countries and from different
fields of artistic practice and reflection were invited to
use their theoretical knowledge and practical
experience to consider how artistic processes and
methods can be perceived, valued, used and critically
