The Fourth International Summer Academy for Artist Researcher took place in Stockholm 10.8–16.8.2015. The aim of SAAR is to discuss in depth the participants’ doctoral projects within the developing discourses of art practice and research. This happens through different forms of supervision and intensive conversation.
The Summer Academy provides a supportive setting where artist-researchers from all fields collaborate, present their on-going artistic work and research and receive feedback from experienced tutors and peers from leading academic institutions. The academy aims to reflect the international diversity and scope of artistic research and to provide a stimulating intellectual environment. It seeks to clarify, discuss and develop further emerging themes and issues arising out of the individual doctoral projects of the participants within the framework of artistic research.
