Residencies and visiting researching artists

Sprouting and growing research implies interaction with 'good practices'.

Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

Each academic year, the studios at the Academy invite an artist, designer, theorist, curator and / or researcher to share his or her artistic research with the students and the research community. In addition to a public lecture or presentation - open to all students, teachers and researchers - a consultation moment or an in-depth workshop with the researcher is organized for the students.

The doctoral researchers also enter into dialogue with the BA3 and MA students about their work and research, if possible linked to a studio visit.

In addition, the Academy developed a program of 'visiting researching artists', in which an internationally renowned artist and / or designer visits the school, shares his / her artistic practice, visits the studios of the students, and discusses with other researchers meta themes such as higher art education or research in the arts.

From September 2020 on, a residency program will be set up for researchers in the arts in collaboration with the research group Thinking Tools and AAIR.

Royal Conservatoire Antwerp

The Conservatory also organizes a variety of exchanges between internal and external researchers and educational activities and students. The research in the arts can be boosted by experiments in collaboration with the students. Internal or external researchers regularly organize workshops, and research projects are addressed within an existing course or result in a music history module, an optional course, etcetera.
