Observing/Documenting: Practising Artistic Research – Anna Harris

This course, developed by Anna Harris, was a hands-on methodology workshop, where art teachers explored ways in which ethnographic research methodologies meet artistic practice. The overall aim of this course was to interrogate art research practices and more specifically, to articulate more clearly existing crossovers between artistic research practices and those in other fields, to consider the creative possibilities of convergence and the ways in which this could be developed further.

The course explored ways in which teachers can both enrich existing art documentation practices amongst students and foster new practices. It drew predominantly upon ethnographic research methods for inspiration, attending particularly to the intersections between ethnographic and artistic research methods.
