Anne Julie Arnfred is interested in collaborations between visual art, art exhibitions and (non-artistic and non-art historical) academic research.
Increasingly, in recent years, collaboration and synergies between art and interdisciplinary research projects have emerged as parts of an artistic agenda. The (re-found) interest in this type of collaborations, has had the effect of expanding the field of art and research, to not only consider artistic research, but also the curatorial practices working with `exhibition as research´.
However, despite a number of significant international publications and exhibitions, an adequate conceptual language is still lacking for this type of exhibitions, as is a shared awareness regarding curatorial approaches and methods for working with exhibitions as co-creations between art and interdisciplinary (artistic and academic) research. It is the aim of this PhD project, to contribute to filling the gap
Anne Julies Arnfreds PhD project Curating research – the researching art exhibition as knowledge generator is a practice to theory investigation into how art exhibitions can work as a knowledge creators and facilitators in (non-artistic and non-art historical) academic research projects at e.g. the universities, not as illustrations of the conducted research, but as actual contributors to an amalgamated knowledge process in as well the exhibition production as in the exhibition space.
