The Swedish Journal for Artistic Research

The journal ArtMonitor aims to break a silence. Artistic research, established in Sweden as an academic activity during the last ten years, needs its own periodical. The Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts of the Gothenburg University has set this as its aim and here is the result: a journal for documentation, reflection and dialogue on the ardent theme of artistic research. ArtMonitor is published in English, and sometimes in bilingual Swedish/English editions. In a critical review the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet stated that the magazine

”oscillates between essayism, artistic practice and meta reflection in a most exiting way. They write about silent knowledge, poetics, reflection on reflection, composition of the composed, in the difference between objective and subjective knowledge, epistemology and doxology…”

Nr 3/2008


We focus on the unmapped territories where the new researching practices - at the crossroads of art, philosophy and technology - perceive their own discursive conditions of possibility: >Aktualität<, institutional requirements, creativity-on-demand, growth, mobility, socio-pedagogico-political instrumentality etc.
