About VIS

Stockholm University of the Arts and Norwegian Artistic Research Programme have collaborated to establish a digital journal for artistic research ( The purpose of the journal is to serve as a basic source of knowledge for anyone who wants to learn and immerse themselves in artistic research in the Nordic region. The goal is to strengthen Nordic cooperation for artistic research. With this journal, we hope to contribute to insight, knowledge and awareness of methods, ethics and context in artistic processes.

Every Issue will feature 5–7 Peer-Reviewed expositions and the journal will come out two times a year. All the expositions featured in the journal are made in Research Catalogue. Issue 0 was published together with the website 9 April 2018.
