Michael Schwab

Dr. Michael Schwab is an artist and artistic researcher who interrogates post-conceptual uses of technology in a variety of media including photography, drawing, printmaking and installation art. He is tutor at the Zurich University of the Arts as well as research fellow at the Orpheus Institute, Ghent and the University of Applied Arts, Vienna. Since 2003 his exhibitions and associated events have increasingly focused on artistic research, and he has been a collaborator and adviser on a number of research projects. He is co-initiator and inaugural Editor-in-Chief of JAR, the Journal for Artistic Research.

Educated in both philosophy (Hamburg University) and art (Royal College of Art, London), his research focuses on the methodologies and epistemologies of artistic research. Through a focus on experimentation and the exposition of practice as research, he has developed a conceptual approach that links artistic autonomy with academic criticality in support of what has been called the ‘practice turn in contemporary theory’. Michael Schwab is the responsible for Strand 3. Epistemology, Philosophy and Aesthetics
