SAR Academy: Special Interest Groups

Under the heading of SAR Academy the Society for Artistic Research supports the operation of Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

SIGs consist of people (e.g. artists, curators, scholars, educators) who gather around a shared theme or concern regarding artistic research.

SIGs themes or concerns might vary. Here are some examples:

  • 4E-cognition and art research
  • Artistic research and new materialism
  • Doctoral studies in artistic research
  • Artistic research and science & technology studies
  • Sound art research
  • Artistic research in Latin America

SIGs are moderated and chaired by one of more members of SAR, i.e. an individual member and/or a representative of an institutional member.

SIGs will be launched at the 10th SAR International Conference on Artistic Research, Zurich 21-23 March 2019.

From 2020 on, SIGs will have the opportunity to assemble the day before the annual International Conference on Artistic Research.

If you are interested in establishing a SIG you will have to the opportunity to propose a SIG during the conference in Zurich. A first meeting of SIGs is planned on Saturday 23 March, 12:45. An announcement of the initiative will be made at the opening of the conference on Thursday, 17:00.
