El concepto “artistic research” expresa la íntima conexión entre arte e investigación en el trabajo de los artistas con formación universitaria. El blog: “Investigación, arte, universidad. Documentos para un debate” nace a partir de dos Proyectos de Innovación Educativa, dentro de la Facultad de Bellas Artes de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, como seminario permanente de reflexión en torno a estas cuestiones, abierto a los estudiantes del Máster en Investigación en Arte y Creación [MIAC]. Fruto de este seminario ha sido la publicación del libro: Investigación artística y Universidad: materiales para un debate, Selina Blasco (ed.), Ediciones Asimétricas, Madrid, 2013; con la participación de: Aurora Fernández Polanco, Beatriz Fernández Ruiz, Helena Grande, Lila Insúa Lintridis, Javier Ramírez Serrano y Alejandro Simón.


The notion of “artistic research” addresses the close connection between art and investigation within the work of artists trained in universities. This blog originates from two Projects of Innovation in Education at the School of Fine Arts (Facultad de Bellas Artes) of Universidad Complutense the Madrid. It functions as a continuous semminar fostering both debate and reflection upon issues related to artistic research and as an open forum for the students of UCM’s Master in Artistic and Creative Research (Máster en Investigación en Arte y Creación [MIAC]). As a result of this semminar, we have published a compilation of essays on artistic research edited by UCM’s professor Selina Blasco. Entitled, Investigación artística y Universidad: materiales para un debate (Madrid: Ediciones Asimétricas, 2013), it includes texts by Aurora Fernández Polanco, Beatriz Fernández Ruiz, Helena Grande, Lila Insúa Lintridis, Javier Ramírez Serrano, and Alejandro Simón.

Artistic Research and Fieldwork as Social Practice -- Cornelia Sollfrank in conversation with Gavin Renwick

In his exhibition “Home Office” (spring 2008) Gavin Renwick explored ideas about land use, ownership and home. For the time of the exhibition, the Cooper Gallery, which is part of the Duncan of Jordanstone School of Art and Design at Dundee University functioned as a workspace for the artist, and had been transformed into a place for social interaction, with a programme that included discussions about anthropology, education and art. Cornelia Sollfrank used this opportunity to visit Gavin in his “home office” and talked to him about his work in Canada with the Dogrip First Nation people, and how this work relates to Gavin’s practice as artist researcher and particularly the practice-led PhD Gavin has completed in 1999 at DoJ.
