Oslo National Academy of the Arts organizes a week focusing on artistic research from 22 to 25 January. The programme consists of workshops, presentations, round-table discussions, screenings, exhibitions, artist talks etc. Artistic research is an integrated part of the activities at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. The Artistic Research Week shall contribute to a wider understanding of the research going on, and also increase the discursive level on artistic research, sharing experiences, insights and knowledge that is generated through practice-based research with faculties, students and a wider audience. The programme – with a few exceptions – is therefore open to the public. New this year is a collaboration with Kunstnernes Hus.
