Research at ArtEZ is defined by who we are – as individuals, and as a collective. We are a critical, collaborative, and creative community in which professorships, centres of expertise, (master's) education and ArtEZ studium generale, ArtEZ Business Centre and ArtEZ Press join in addressing urgent and emergent questions of our times. We approach artistic research as a transformative practice to create meaningful and caring engagements for a future of humane and ethical possibilities.
