The Conflict of the Faculties

Perspectives on Artistic Research and Academia

Leiden University Press. May 2012

This book is about artistic research: what it is, or what it could be. And it is about the place that artistic research could have in academia, within the whole of academic research. Artistic research is an endeavour in which the artistic and the academic are connected. In this emerging field of research artistic practices  contribute as research to what we know and understand, and academia opens its mind to forms of knowledge and understanding that are entwined with artistic practices.

This book is the first to define, in concrete terms, the standards to which artistic research should conform. Well written and well argued, it will probably  become a reference for many studies to come and  required reading for anyone active in this field.

Henk Borgdorff is professor of Research in the Arts at the University of the Arts, The Hague, and visiting professor of Aesthetics at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts of the University of Gothenburg in Sweden.
