Konstfack Research Week 2024

22-26 January

Konstfack Research Week 2024 explores interdisciplinary practices, discourses and perspectives on artistic research from across the areas of art, craft, design, interior architecture and furniture design, visual communication and teacher education. Sometimes defined through its capacity to incorporate the intuitive, the pre-conceptual, and the non-linguistic, artistic research contributes to the production and dissemination of new knowledge in and through the practice of art, crafts and design.

Throughout Research Week 2024, we will have the opportunity to reflect upon the ways in which artistic research has the ability to affect and interact with society at large, encountering, engaging with, and contributing to the sharing of new insights.


The week is divided into three main sections. Views on Research I & II (Monday and Tuesday), features keynote lectures from international guest speakers and research presentations delivered by colleagues at Konstfack. This concludes on Tuesday evening with the inaugural lectures of one new professor. On Wednesday and Thursday are the research Nodes, a series of two-day events which combine lectures and workshops focused upon specific research themes. The final session on Friday concludes the week with a series of closing events. All Research Week events, aside from some Node activities, are open to the public.
