Approximately 280 institutions around the world offer third-cycle research degrees in the arts. The legal frameworks and organisational structures of that institutions vary widely, as well as the doctoral programmes and degrees they offer. Yet, they share the same vision, namely to realise doctoral programmes that enable candidates to make an original contribution to their discipline and to advance the field of artistic research by further developing themselves as both artists and researchers.
Undoing Supervision. A Compendium of Key Issues in Supervising Artistic Research Doctorates aims to present the outcomes of a three years strategic partnership project in a nutshell. As such it is to be understood as a poly vocal document, intended as a contribution to the field of artistic research and the advancement of artistic research doctorates.
Inevitably, this compendium is neither exhaustive nor conclusive, but rather presents the results of the project at a particular point in time, and invites further engagement with the key issues at stake. It provides direct and open access to the online resources developed by and through the partnership and in conversation with the community of peers, professionals and stakeholders in and for artistic research (doctorates).
