METHOD/ART #6: Unpredictability


Initiated by Adilia On-ying Yip, Vivi Touloumidi and Umut Eldem

25 - 26 March 2024
at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

The main topic of the sixth edition of METHOD/ART is unpredictability in artistic research methodology. We seek to gain control over the research process and output at every level and stage of the project. This pursuit of control and the fear of obstacles are bound to the recognition and success of the research, as well as the fulfillment of the requirements of the existing academic rules and structures.

However, including chaotic processes, obstacles, and dead ends can also become part of the methodology of artistic research. In the fabric of cultural and social structures, uncertainties and failures can be integrated into the crafting of methodology, gathering and treating data, and even, generating unanticipated output as the research result. The capacity and resilience in dealing with unwanted uncertainty may bring new perspectives to the artistic research process.
