Mission research group Image in Context

The practice-based research of the research group Image in Context is focussed on new roles, practices and working standards of artists. Important aspects are 'artist in context' and 'visual work standard in context'. The research group researches how artists and designers can fulfil their role in the social, political, educational or intercultural domain.

The artistic work standards of artists teach us how to look and act differently. This brings into motion more aspects than traditional ways of thinking and working might do. The research group applies various work standards of artists as catalysts in processes of change. Researchers, teachers, students and social partners work together on solving current social problems.    


Vision

The practice-based research conducted by the research group Image in Context is connected to questions and problems in society. We believe in the potential contribution the arts can make to a humane and movable world. The artist can have great importance in processes of change through his imagination, his questioning attitude, the ability to make new connections and look beyond the obvious. Within the research group Image in Context we work in an open and inclusive way, always taking foundations into account. Based on a trans-disciplinary research-learning environment and through co-creative working standards of artists and designers we give shape to the participation society of the 21st century.

 
History
Professor of Image in Context is Anke Coumans and her research group started in May 2012. The research group is part of the Research Centre Art & Society and is related to the bachelor and master courses of Minerva Art Academy.

During the past few years five research strands have been developed under the supervision of professor Anke Coumans, which can be considered perspectives on the development of art in context. These perspectives are: the political activist; photography and media; intercultural didactics, social pedagogics and  the transition systemic perspective. These are represented by research leaders. These research leaders supervise the research projects and develop knowledge and research methodologies in their own research strand. Each strand has PhD research at its core which, within the domain, is translated into projects which have an impact on both education and society and the professional practice.
