Creating and exploring synergies between art and science as a catalyst for creativeprocesses and projects with critical and theoretical debate. We aim to create a theoretical territory in which practices, teaching and evaluation of both art and science are debated and new strategies are formulated.

As there is no general agreement concerning common and distinct elements defining the terms “artistic practice” and “artistic research”, we aim to develop a theoretical basis wherein strategies for practicing, teaching and evaluating art are formulated. We will investigate, in and through artistic and scientific experimental practice, differences and similarities, and influences of one field into another. The degree to which values and terminology from the observational sciences may be influencing Art as opposed to the influence historically exerted by philosophy will be called into question. Labs, ateliers, and artistic residencies will engage research and practice in both domains.
