Envelope #4 is the fourth issue of an open format documenting relevant developments in art and research published by Zentrum Fokus Forschung. This publication provides an update on the current growth and the shared experiences made inside the Artistic Research PhD Programme of the University of Applied Arts Vienna. The core of Envelope#4 documents content provided by PhD candidates based upon their artistic research. These visual and written traces portray the current state of the art within their continuous research processes. Jointly developed between Margarete Jahrmann, Professor for the Artistic Research PhD Programme since 2017/18, and Alexander Damianisch, head of Zentrum Fokus Forschung, this open format tries to follow and reflect our experiences through a tentative way of sharing, as well as providing reference and provocation.

The focus is on artistic work—which is regarded as the basis of knowledge production—and topics and practices of artistic research govern it. The six-semester long study programme in English starts each autumn and is located at the Zentrum Fokus Forschung. The selection criteria are the topicality, innovation potential, and social relevance of the artistic research issue described in the exposé, and knowledge of its national and international research context. Doctoral candidates are tutored by professors from the University of Applied Arts Vienna, recommended by a committee in charge of candidate selection.
