Session #1 Artistic guidance in a doctoral context: Challenges and Opportunities
On December 3, 2019 we had a kickstart discussion through Synthetron where participants took place on small virtual tables. We exchanged challenges and opportunities observed/experienced in supervising artistic research doctorates. We also took a closer look at building blocks of engaging with the artistic practice and artistic outcomes. Lastly we shared thoughts on critique in an artistic doctoral context.
Brief glimpse of the exchange:
- Challenges: lack in candidate preparation, articulating the artistic practice, providing tailored information as a supervisor for every unique research project.
- Opportunities: providing pre-admission support, better integration of PhD candidates in the institution, training for artistic supervisors.
- Engaging with the artistic practice and artistic outcomes: listening, asking questions that help reflect upon artistic processes, collaborate and participate.
- Critique: reach an agreement on how to conduct critique in an artistic doctoral context, critique to be developed in seminars – in an environment other than individual supervision, meaningful critique tries to show the potential within an idea or production and how that succeeds or falls short.
