The SAR 2022 conference MEND-BLEND-ATTEND will present the state of the art in Artistic Research, as critically responding to the Frascati Manual and the Vienna Declaration on Artistic Research: excellent research through means of high-level artistic practice and reflection; an epistemic inquiry, directed towards increasing knowledge, insight, understanding and skills. The declaration also states that artistic research fulfils the five criteria for research as defined in the OECD framework document for research, the Frascati Manual. With this document, the artistic research community has taken an important step towards a broader recognition of artistic research worldwide. The SAR 2022 conference program will give special attention to creating spaces of inclusivity and diversity.
