The main goals of the research center are to develop a ‘sustainable ground’ to analyze, document and share the knowledge that is being developed in the a.pass environment, opening it up to public sharing, discussion and debate. The research centre also aims at feeding the a.pass programs through the development of experimental, challenging, nomadic research set-ups that question, disseminate and test the a.pass principles within a larger context.
The research center also tries to relate the individual interests of the researchers to a larger commonal context of knowledge processing and dissemination, and make the movements of knowledge processed in the a.pass research projects visible on a larger, shared and transindividual level.
The researches developed at the research center experiment the notions of research and artistic methodologies of research to their limits, so as to come to a clear understanding of the potential subversive qualities for change that are specific to the artistic research field.
On the level of documentation and communication the a.pass research centre aims at:
>developing tools for the development of artistic research on an advanced level (PhD and others) by
>developing methodologies, strategies and critical criteria for knowledge development within artistic research contexts
>archiving and making accessible interesting research results and methodologies through publication of these results in a written or live form
>developing tools for the international communication of the results of the advanced researches
