The relationship between art and research can take different shapes and meanings. Recent decades have seen an increase in artists getting involved in traditionally academic research settings, collaborating with scientists, philosophers, engineers, and the like. At the same time, artistic production itself, under the name of Artistic Research, has gained more recognition as a legitimate tool for the generation of knowledge within academic institutions. Moreover, non-artists and academic researchers have also engaged in artistic projects that complement their own research by offering alternative epistemologies within their field. The different interactions between art and academia seem to offer new perspectives to known and complex issues across different fields, allowing artists and researchers to blur the lines between artistic practice and research.
