About the publication
The publication Research & Development Special projects, residencies, publications and research by Rotterdam visual artists. 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017 provides a lively overview of four years of artistic research projects by more than 160 Rotterdam artists and thus shows a cross-section of contemporary artistic practice. The projects, which took place from 2014 to 2017, are classified in this publication on the basis of eight different professional views of the artist: activist, connector, translator, newsreader, historian, scientist, technologist and image designer. In interviews, six artists talk about the influence of the R&D contribution on the development of their work. The publication also contains essays by art theorist Janneke Wesseling about the importance of artistic research and philosopher Henk Oosterling about the artist and his craftsmanship.

About the R&D scheme
The Research & Development (R&D) scheme has been implemented since 2010 and gives Rotterdam visual artists the opportunity to develop and deepen their professional practice through research. The first publication appeared in 2014 with an overview of the artists who received an R&D contribution between 2010 and 2014. For more information about the R&D scheme, visit www.rotterdamsekunstenaars.nl.
