Committee for Scientific Integrity of Universities of the Arts online

Universities of applied science are responsible for higher vocational education, and also increasingly acting as knowledge institutions. The practice-based research that is conducted at these institutions, must comply with high quality standards. Therefore, the Netherlands Association of Universities of Applied Sciences adopted the policy to implement the Netherlands Code of Conduct for Research Integrity (NGWI, October 2018) at all Universities of Applied Science.

The seven monosectoral universities of the arts also adhere to the norms of this code of Conduct. Amsterdam University of the Arts, ArtEZ, Codarts, Design Academy Eindhoven, HKDH, HKU and Rietveld Academie established a collective Committee for Scientific Integrity (CWI-KUO) for the arts education per 1 January 2023. This committee has the task to process any complaints concerning integrity. The cooperation between the seven universities of the arts ensures that the expertise in practice-based research in the arts is properly and broadly represented.

More information on the committee, the assignment, way of working and members can now be found online:

DIS_SEMINAR #2 – call for proposals

On Tuesday 29 November 2022 from 10.00 to 18.00, the platform kunst onderzoek (‘art = research’) will again organise a exposium. The location for this edition is Fort De Batterijen in Nieuwegein, close to Utrecht.

The name of this year’s edition remains the same as in 2019: DIS_SEMINAR as we prolong the theme of alternative forms of dissemination of research in the arts. We regard the event as an informal setting to present research in the arts to each other, discuss and exchange them, and together contribute to the discourse of artistic research in the Netherlands. The programme is set up as such that it’s for the professorships, by the professorships. Therefore we hope we can count on your participation!

call for proposals

The programme consists of several keynote speakers and smaller work sessions. It will be held in English. The contents of the sessions are linked to the works of art and design lectorates. We invite you and other researchers in your professorship to contribute as:

  • Presenting professorship (in collaboration with artists-researchers)
  • Discussion leader / moderator, who also introduces a question or statement
  • Ref-Lector, for a written reflection and summary of the session


We expect to have multiple alternating sub-sessions. The general overview looks like:

  • Presentations: short alternative presentation forms of art research, such as, for example, a performance lecture, exposition, interactive installation. These can also be disseminations of or postdoc research, third cycle or MA research! Estimated duration: 20 minutes
  • Discussion: following up on the presentation, a discussion leader introduces a question or statement with regard to the dissemination form. This starts a discussion/conversation or workshop under guidance of the discussion leader. The main questions or statements are collected at the end and fed back. (45-60 minutes)
  • Reflection: each sub-session ends with one researcher who summarises the focus points of the conversation at the end of the exposium, along with a short reflection for on the website.


Productional and financial conditions for presentations
A compensation fee is available for the presentations; for any incurred costs and for the presenting artist-researcher (practice-based researcher). We like to hear about any technical and financial conditions you have. Complex projects that require lots of set-up time or technical support are difficult to realise. Please take this into account. We can make use of the full Fort location, including the outdoor area. You can see the different spaces here:
If you have a preference for a specific area, please indicate this when you register your proposal.



Proposals for participation (before 18 October 2022)
Interested in showing yourself and contributing to the programme? In the enclosed document you can indicate how you want to participate. You can also suggest someone else from your research group or network to present/moderate or reflect. In case of multiple registrations, we will have to make a selection. Send your registration to before October 18. Please use this form.
When you are not able to actively contribute, we still hope to receive you and the researchers from your professorships & institutions as visitors on 29 November, as well as post-docs, (pre-)PhD students, research assistants and policy officers. The invitations will be available to share further soon.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us. We like to think along. Let’s co-create a fabulous and exciting programme together again!

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.

To read, visit:


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.

Invitation to an initiative of the Institute of Cartopology 20-21 August

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.
