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.

Boris Buden: Artist as Teacher?

Boris Buden in conversation with Cornelia Sollfrank, Dmitry Vilensky and David Riff

t is obvious why we would be so keen on discussing the problems of teaching in the field of art and reflecting our own experiences in art universities and alternative art schools. This practice has lost that innocence it used to have earlier on, when not only art enjoyed its relative autonomy in a clearly structured society, but art education too had played just as clearly defined a role in the reproduction of the grand narrative of a universal history of art: to transmit and improve knowledge and the experience of art-making. But nothing is in its proper place nowadays, neither art within society nor society itself.
