Henk Slager
Research and visual art have colored the context of many activities developed by Henk Slager over the last eight years. Significant contributions to the debate on the situation of research in visual art resulted from his professorship Artistic Research and his position of Dean of the Utrecht Graduate School of Visual Art and Design (MaHKU) leading to productions such as the yearly Dutch Artistic Research Event (DARE) and the publication of the biannual MaHKUzine, Journal of Artistic Research.
In 2006, Henk Slager initiated - together with Jan Kaila and Gertrud Sandqvist - the European Artistic Research Network (EARN), a network investigating the consequences of artistic research for current art education in symposia, expert meetings, and presentations such as A Certain Ma-ness (Amsterdam, 2008), Epistemic Encounters (Utrecht, 2009), Arts Research: Publics and Purposes (Dublin, 2010), Tables of Thought (Helsinki, 2010), Agonistic Academies (Brussels, 2010), Art as a Thinking Process (Venice, 2011), Staging Knowledge (Istanbul, 2012), Doing Research (Documenta 13, 2012), The Counter-Order of Things (Venice, 2013) and What isMonumental Today (St. Petersburg, 2014).
Henk Slager's current positions are Dean of the Utrecht Graduate School of Visual Art and Design (MaHKU), Professor of Artistic Research at HKU Utrecht University of the Arts; Professor of Theory and Artistic Research at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts/University of the Art Helsinki; Tutor Curatorial Program at De Appel Foundation, Amsterdam; Founding Member European Artististic Research Network (EARN) and Member of the Advisory Board of PARSE (Platform for Artistic Research Sweden).
