The new institutional connection between research and art/design has promoted much discussion concerning the dialogue between theory and practice, or ‘reflecting’ and ‘making’, the emphasis often being on the question of how they might be combined in a productive way.
The aim of the Art and Research conference is to continue and update the discussions concerning the relationship between art and design practices and research, in terms of both content and modes of presentation.
