The booklet "Artistic Research for the Advanced - ten proposals!" has been written by the Tahto Doctoral Students for the participation in the University of Arts Helsinki Research Pavilion activities in Venice in May 2015.
The booklet provides some answers to questions about artistic research that you may have been too ashamed to ask from your professors, supervisors, colleagues or other artists. You may have noticed that research in art has gained an important position. However, there is quite a lot of uncertainty or ignorance about this new field of research.
This small booklet will elucidate some of these issues through ten points of view from students of artistic research (in the TAhTO doctoral programme in artistic research), from music to film, scenography and performance art, from video to participatory art and from composing to dance. Aside from this slightly cheeky approach, the intention of this publication is to reflect on some of the misconceptions, problems or illusions that exist regarding artistic research, and how we perceive them now, or before we embark on a journey in artistic research.
