Arts universities have conducted, supervised, evaluated, and analysed research based on artistic activity. In the early days of this artistic research, a question arose: Can a work or act of art itself be artistic research? This question is a serious one that concerns our idea of research. This also leads to a less serious issue that describes our relationship to art: Although art is an important part of life, and although it delights and shocks us and makes our lives sweet and enjoyable, it is never on a par with other human actions. Art is always individual, and we can never be certain that it is indispensable even to the artist in question. Who says that art is not just a mistake, the joke of a lifetime, or an indiscretion? A human skill is never predictable, firm, or steady.
