1st. International Artistic Jazz Research Symposium (October 6-7, 2019)December 2nd, 2019
The 1st International Artistic Jazz Research Symposium from 6 to 7 October 2019 at JAM Music Lab Private University for Jazz and Popular Music Vienna, together with the Institute for Jazz Research of the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, provided an overview of various methodological approaches, presented numerous successful examples of Artistic Research projects, and started to establish a network that offers researchers, scholars, and students opportunities for discussions and ideas for further projects.
Artistic Research (AR) is an approach within the theory of science in which artistic practice is seen as a discursive process that leads to knowledge, in contrast to or in addition to established theories of science. Artistic Research thus supplements and sometimes contradicts traditional scientific approaches in essential points, but re-links the fields of art and science, which have been drifted far apart in the course of the history of science.
