Practices of Experimentation: Research and Teaching in the Arts Today by Department of Art & Media, Zurich University of the Arts

At the Department of Art and Media at Zürich University, which comprises the undergraduate specializations of fine arts, photography, media arts, and theory along with a masters program anchored by two research institutes, experimentation lies at the heart of creative research and teaching. The 2012 yearbook of the department explores how practices of experimentation are implemented in one of the most renowned arts departments worldwide and investigates how the various fields—of teaching, research, theory, and practice—interlace with, inspire, and inform one another.  

Through fifteen works in text, image, video, and sound by theorists and artists inside and outside the department, this work considers how practices of experimentation unfold and how they affect artistic creation, the relationship between art schools and society, the production of knowledge, and the particularities of inter- and trans-disciplinary teaching and research in the arts.
