Michael Schwab’s editorial for JAR 13 approaches the question of how to begin to create a submission in order to articulate JAR’s notion of ‘expositionality’, a crucial but elusive submission requirement of the journal. Explaining the need for each submission to strive to be an example of artistic research, Schwab writes: “At its inception JAR  coined the term ‘exposition’ to indicate that a new and dynamic relationship between form and content needs to be available in which each individual practice can take hold to ‘expose itself as research’… this is the ideal. A more modest consideration will instantly accept that becoming an example is not only a liberation but also a burden insofar as it carries a responsibility towards all other cases of which it is to be an example. Hence, within JAR, the general also matters.”

The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is an international, online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal that disseminates artistic research from all disciplines. JAR invites the ever-increasing number of artistic researchers to develop what for the sciences and humanities are standard academic publication procedures. It serves as a meeting point of diverse practices and methodologies in a field that has become a worldwide movement with many local activities.

JAR provides a digital platform where multiple methods, media and articulations can function together to generate insights in artistic research endeavours. It seeks to promote ‘expositions’ of practice as research. In JAR artistic research is viewed as an evolving field where research and art are positioned as mutually influential. Recognising that the field is ever developing and expanding, JAR remains open to continued re-evaluation of its publishing criteria.
