The fact that we are at a conference debating practice-based research tells us that we are working within an actually existing paradigm for art and that there are certain distinctive conditions that define what practice-based research for art is and is not. It posits the idea that there is a shared language, or at least some common set of problems and questions that define artistic research – the idea that art is a discipline but that it is also a part of a set of discourses, and that there are rules by which we obtain shared expectations and adopt common conventions that mediate art in natural, everyday language.
