The Maastricht Experimental Research In and through the Arts Network (MERIAN) invites artists and academics to engage in collaborative research in between making and thinking.


As a MERIAN PhD candidate you mobilize the powers and fragilities of artistic and scientific practices to engage in research that is problem-based and methodologically innovative, and which focusses on interdisciplinary topics that can fruitfully be explored across the arts and academia.

News from the NWA Art route

Michel van Dartel is the new figurehead

Janneke Wesseling will soon retire and has therefore recently resigned from her duties as figurehead of the Art route. She proposed Michel van Dartel as her successor, a proposal that was wholeheartedly supported by the steering committee of the Art route. Van Dartel is director of the platform for art and media technology V2_Lab in Rotterdam and lector at Avans Center for Art Design and Technology.

Van Dartel supports the goals of the NWA (De Nationale Wetenschapsagenda) and the mission of the Art route as formulated under the chairmanship of Wesseling. “The confidence that the route instills in me is an enormous stimulus, also for the work that I do as a director and lector,” says Van Dartel.

In this article he introduces himself.

ArtEZ Platform for Research Interventions of the Arts (APRIA)

New issue of APRIA Journal, Urgent Publishing

Announcing the new issue of APRIA Journal, Urgent Publishing, edited by Miriam Rasch and Nishant Shah, with contributions by Florian Cramer, Labor Neunzehn, Miriam Rasch and Paul Soulellis.


Urgent Publishing delves into the question of how publishers can keep up standards of quality and care for their audiences in a sphere that is increasingly dominated by breaking news, hype cycles and metrics. How can a different approach to the timeframes or tempo of publishing help in building relevant publics for content? Beyond the commodified practices of publishing one-off objects, how can publishing be a tool for critical community building?

The full issue is now available online and as a downloadable pdf.

APRIA (ArtEZ Platform for Research Interventions of the Arts) is a digital platform that curates an open-access, peer-reviewed journal (APRIA journal) and showcases the latest in art research at ArtEZ. APRIA platform also publishes high-impact essays, image and sound contributions that examine art and interventions of the arts in relation to science and society. An annual Open Call encourages students, artists, and researchers affiliated with ArtEZ to submit their own contributions. APRIA is an initiative of ArtEZ University of the Arts, ArtEZ Press and ArtEZ Studium Generale.

ArtEZ Theory in the Arts Professorship

The new APRIA Journal is out: Time Matters.

This issue of APRIA, Time Matters, was compiled and edited by the ArtEZ Theory in the Arts professorship. All of these reviewed artistic (research) and academic contributions were created and written specially in response to the four-part Time Matters seminar (2019-2020). The aim of the publication and the seminar is to inquire into the changing concepts of time in the arts and other epistemic fields collectively, and to explore and test alternative – past, present and future-oriented – temporalities.
