MoAR – Museum of Artistic Research

"Following my 50% seminar in June 2017, I became acutely aware of me pushing just about anything I’ve witnessed within artistic academia into a validation of my theory building, becoming a prime example of confirmation bias. So, I asked myself: what if I’m mistaken in my accusations and (institutionalized) critique of artistic research as a field, in addition to its claims of sourcing new aspects of knowledge production? So, in order to discern and truly examine my bold assertions, I commenced with the staging of the embodiment of academic artistic research – the art, the design, the literature, the music, the architecture etc – in as many manifested forms and shapes as possible. Hence the staging of MoAR, Museum of Artistic Research". / Bogdans words about the project

During the seminar a staging of the first-time group exhibition of artistic research, representing approximately 10% of all artistic researchers that publicly have defended a doctoral thesis in Sweden, covering all disciplines from film animation over fashion design to choreography.
