SAR is proud to present the Vienna Declaration, a policy paper advocating for the full recognition of Artistic Research across Europe. More than one year ago, the main organisations and transnational networks dealing with Artistic Research at European level and beyond decided to join forces to increase the visibility and recognition of this strand of research. The Vienna Declaration, co-written by AEC, CILECT / GEECT, Culture Action Europe, Cumulus, EAAE, ELIA, EPARM, EQ-Arts, MusiQuE and SAR, is the first outcome of this important collaboration. The initiative is open to the involvement of other international organisations proving legitimate interest.
The long term aims of this concerted action, and the formulation of documents such as the Vienna Declaration on Artistic Research and the Florence Principles on the Doctorate in the Arts, are to secure full recognition of artistic research both within international as well as national research directories and funding schemes.
12th SAR International Conference on Artistic Research
Hosted by mdw – University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna in cooperation with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
Conference will be hosted as a live online event: from 7th to 9th April 2021.
Deadline for submissions via the Research Catalogue (RC): 30th Sept 2020.
Deadline for registering as full users at the RC: Ten days earlier – 20th Sept 2020.
The 12th SAR International Conference on Artistic Research will invite submissions that relate to three attractors dare, care, and share. It will be the first SAR conference organized as a live online event. We are calling for artistic researchers to present their work, processes, methods, discoveries, knowledge interventions, new insights, understandings, and to engage in exchange – in actions and words, complex and simple, by conventional and unconventional, robust, and fragile means.
We encourage original contributions that take on the challenge of bringing liveness to this mediated online event. Each contribution shall receive ample discussion time (in real time via video conference).
We will support the following presentation formats:
- Presentation using preproduced material, which will be “presented” and integrated in an interactive online conference;
- Streamed live-performances/demonstrations.
The conference website can be found here: sar2021vienna.ac.at

The Crisis Collective ! (cancelled)
Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, we unfortunately find it necessary to cancel the conference in Bergen. We apologize for the inconvenience this entails for the participants.
The decision is founded on an overall joint assessment by the University of Bergen and SAR, based on the current advice from The Norwegian Institute of Public Health in relation to the growing concerns on the quick spreading of the virus.
We find the possibility for an outbreak and the consequent risk for quarantines etc. too high.
We will refund the conference fees and get back to you regarding procedures for this as soon as possible.
NB! Please note that that the conference organizers cannot offer any refund on travel and/or accommodations costs, and we advise you to cancel such arrangements as soon as possible.
The Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design and SAR are truly sorry for having to cancel the conference due to these unfortunate circumstances, but are looking into the possibility of transforming the contributions into a more permanent format,
like a publication or through digital dissemination.
With best regards
SAR11 Conference Committee
