Facts and background:
The PhD programme of artistic research was established at KMD in 2019, with this requirement for results:

  • The PhD result shall consist of an artistic result as well as material that documents artistic reflection. The artistic result is to be an independent work that meets international standards in terms of level and ethical requirements within the subject area.

Read article about the new programme (Norwegian only).

The PhD programme in artistic research is based on a platform similar to the Norwegian Artistic Research Fellowship Programme which has existed since 2003. The fellows are employed at one of the three departments at KMD – fine art, music or design – and connected to a national research school of artistic research, with interartistic seminars and conferences. See link for Study and Course Plan.
