History Forum’s research agenda

The basic premise of Uniarts Helsinki's History Forum is that the research of the history of arts cannot be separated from the practice of art, seen as a contemporary, dynamic interpretations of history. The Forum believes that responsible and future-focused historical research will be an integral and important part of all art universities in the future.

The Forum supports the University’s research strategy in regard to the collaboration between its core competencies, academies and departments, and to internationalisation. Uniarts Helsinki should integrate research and knowledge of history at all levels, from Bachelor and Master-level programmes to the most advanced research structures and knowledge production.

For the History Forum – and for Uniarts Helsinki’s other research centres CERADA and Center for Artistic Research – the central inquiry is to explore how arts and artists can exist and function within the society, enriching it and embracing their responsibilities.
