When is research artistic?

When is research artistic?

According to Julian Klein of the Institutional für künstlerisch Forschung in Berlin,

“Research is not artistic when or even only when it is carried out by artists (as helpful as their participation may often be) but rather earns the attributed “artistic” – no matter where, when or from whom it was undertaken – on its specific quality: the mode of artistic experience.”

In this way, research may be understood as an open-ended creation process, one that is incongruous with the finished art object.
