Art and/as Research at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp
Els De bruyn & Johan Pas (Eds.)
In celebration of its rich history in the arts and design community, the 350-year-old Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp undertook assembling a five-year overview of its arts research programs. In both text and image, AND/AS reflects on what research in the arts means for the artist, for art education and for the art world. The comfortably sized and well-illustrated book offers at its core visual insight into the strategies, processes and results of artistic research in a variety of disciplines including photography, painting, video and installation, revealing the unique approach of artists-researchers at the Antwerp academy. Organized into sections by theme, including memory/archives, tools/instruments, art research and education lists, master classes, previous research projects, doctorates and publications, the publication is introduced by editors Els De bruyn and Johan Pas. A register with brief summaries at the end gives a clear overview of the research conducted between 2010 and 2015.
