University of the Arts Helsinki organises a Research Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale. The dynamic between artistic research and contemporary art will be explored through the theme of experimentality.
While the exhibition Experimentality showcases contemporary art, the research events will ask: How does experimentality manifest itself in contemporary art? Has the discourse on artistic research and its methodologies redefined our ideas of experiments and experimentality? Does artistic research facilitate the emergence of new ways to discover connections between science, aesthetics and politics?
