The 2023 Artistic Research graduation show is held by the rMA students from the University of Amsterdam. The twelve participants employ methods of artistic research, embodied in various forms. The exhibition is complemented by a publication and a public programme, consisting of guest lectures, performances, and installations.

Building on our disciplinary diversity, we present a process-oriented show that sustains our various disciplines, contexts, and wishes. We warmly invite you into our research processes through playful, educational and celebratory creations. We wonder how our cluster of work finds a home within de Appel, and subsequently stretches further into the public sphere. A show, a happening, an event—a temporary moment that satellites our individual and collective projects outward. While our body of work is shortly suspended in mid-air, our collective dialogue continues to shift. 

Artists: Liselotte Backx, Kenneth Geurts, Mariana Gusso Nickel, Jhor van der Horst, Abel Kroon, Marta Pagliuca Pelacani, Anna Spiliotopoulou, Leanne Staugaard, Emily Warne, Anouk van Wijk, field fictions (Iulia Aionesi, Dominika Mikolajczyk, Sophie Spekle).

The Research Master of Arts and Performance Research Studies at the University of Amsterdam is a two year programme that links the academic and practice-based specializations through artistic thinking and making. Artistic Research provides new ways of learning that defy the art-academia binary with its interdisciplinary mode of practicing, handling, and creating knowledge. Its process values practical methods and theoretical frameworks, constantly merging and feeding off one another, while critical of the context in which they develop.
