Participatory Art Based Research (PABR)

Responses to Ways of Working Together


26 FEBRUARY 2021, 3:00 – 9:00 PM, ONLINE (ZOOM)

In the last two decades, many different proposals and concepts of artistic and art-based research have been developed and explored. Participatory Art Based Research (PABR) is one of them. Since 2012, 50 participatory research projects were realised, which brought together more than 2000 researchers, co-researchers and participants from all areas of society, art, and science.

We invite you to join us for the official launch of our online publication: The online resource of PABR aims to summarise strategies, potentials and problems of participatory art-based research and make them widely available.

To celebrate the launch of the PABR website, we will discuss these approaches and re- search formats with other experts and practitioners from the field of artistic research – in what ways can we do research together?
For this celebration we invited special guests 
Jamie Allen, Kai van Eikels, Anke Haarmann, Marijke Hoogenboom, Brandon LaBelle, and Isabelle StengersEach panel offers the possibility to participate: All participants are invited to join discussions in breakout rooms (panel 1 and 2). Plenary sessions (panel 1, 2 and 3) are hosted by Kerstin Evert and Kathrin Wildner.

If you are interested in the conference, please contact: 

The symposium is organised and facilitated by Kerstin Evert, Sebastian Matthias, Sibylle Peters, Esther Pilkington, Melcher Ruhkopf and Kathrin Wildner.
