In the past years, Z33 House for Contemporary Art has redefined its core from a project-based exhibition maker to a research-based institution. Z33 exhibitions have always been strongly based on research with a focus on phenomena not only from perspectives of art and design, but with a frame of interlinking these views with theoretical, scientific and philosophical thought. Exhibition projects that spread out over several years constantly reconsider and build on themes, projects and artists of earlier exhibitions.
In 2013, Z33 House for Contemporary Art established Z33 Research in order to recapitulate the different projects and time frames into continuous strands of research. Thematic art and design research studios – Studio Time, Studio Work and Studio Space – accumulate and connect the practice-based and academic research into an evolving body of knowledge.
Z33 Research online (beta) collects and connects these different research threads. A new Z33 Research online platform for art and design research will be launched in late 2017 / early 2018.
