Turning Narrow-Minded Strategies Upside Down

Art and education are our common concerns. There is no excuse for political abdication. Let's hijack the resistance and combat foolishness. Research education shouldn't be just a (temporary) relief from the market but a platform for advanced artistic activity that is challenging or provocative, since it demands new ways of thinking and a new take of what is generally accepted. The field of artistic research must also embrace those who are "geeks", those who don't always combine their artistic achievements with pedagogical proficiency. We need diversity. Above all we need the dynamic, strong artistry that until now has kept a certain distance from academia. How will the arts be transformed by the influence of the art PhDs? Let's turn narrow-minded strategies upside down and empower the artists!
