understood as research even if its methodology is different from that of science The exhibition A Portrait of the Artist as a Researcher 2 0 is a plea for the recognition of the specificity of artistic research and for the art academy as a place of free artistic research beyond the limits of the market beyond all academic norms even after Bologna The exhibition shows a selection of works that are the result of artistic research These works show the artist at work as a researcher investigating the history of an art institution Sven Augustijnen or of cultural practices Sonia Boyce collecting and selecting thoughts Herman Asselberghs or cultural products Jacques André experimenting with sound Art Jones or image Ina Wudtke representing the artist as a social scientist Jill Magid or the philosopher as an artist Dieter Lesage In this way these works comment circle around or criticise the discourse on research that is characteristic of the Bologna Process and interrogate the limits of its applicability for the arts A Portrait of the Artist as a Researcher 2 0 will serve as a platform for a symposium on artistic research on Friday 14 March 2008 from 14 00 20 00 in Brussels
