Artistic research is a new type of the Study of Art. Art in "study", which is no a product for sale, is a kind of practical case study.
For example, in artistic research, "moral and immoral" is a study toward Moral or Ethics. It does not mean "If the art is moral or immoral.", that is impossible in artistic research as Study through art.
The artistic researcher can explore e.g. "Fake" practically or "Sex appeal" practically, which might be possible as an Artifact. But, it is impossible to explore "How to" make a Fake. or "How to" create Sex appeal in the artistic research. (In original Kant's account, almost "everything" is a Fake by the computer today, e.g. in the photography using the computer software. A solution is thereby, which is categorised in the graphic. So, a question "Have you ever lied in your life?" is equivalent to the question through Kant's account. Thereby the questions are such as "What is Lie?" and "What is "truth?", which action (including dealing) or behaviour only by Human(s). In other words, the important question is for the creativity by Human(s).)
In the Art Market, there are many problems, because people learn the art with the "How to" method of creation, which art is as a product for sale, and which method is criminal historically.
In the artistic research of artistic techniques, it might be possible to explore technical Know-How in art, which means explore Artistic Material, Artistic Medium, and Artistic techniques etc., which is most general artistic research for a new art educational materiality in a philosophical sense. (System-exploring)
I explore between philosophical account (common) and artistic account (personal) concerning through (new) Artistic Material, (new) Artistic Medium, and (new) Artistic techniques etc. in the social context practically, towards recent Knowledge in Aesthetics, for a new art educational in the context of liberal arts.

Artistic research and Philosophy: I study analytic philosophy even if I research in continental philosophy. For me, that is only "account", that is the same in Japanese philosophy, which is not for belief. Today's philosophy is in Anthropology.
The study of music in modernism terms in philosophy of religion, which research is also in the scientific aspect today, such as artistic research in music (romanticism), which guide line is on Kant's, and research questions towards high technology and human life. (Art without computer, Hand-Writing, e.g. Cage (also his composition "Ryoanji".)
Currently, I explore in Variation II for the Joint Artistic Research with the composer Valerio Sannicandro, therefore I transform his research context in music into the context of liberal arts for a new format.
