Course Level

What are good practices of artistic and practice-based research supervision? This week-long course explores the heterogeneous processes of PhD- and postdoc-supervision in the arts with the goal of formulating shared horizons. We have the ambition of consolidating our collective mappings into a constructive and inspiring toolkit for researchers, supervisors, and evaluators.

The course brings together professionals from all over Europe in order to discuss, e.g., generation of knowledge; experimental formats of teaching, learning, and research; skills across making and research; styles of writing; ethics in supervision; and supervising collaborative projects. The programme contains excursions to theory and meetings with students.
