Sections include articles and contributions with a recurring form, intent, or tone. Authors are encouraged to expand on these sections. Each section comprehensibly pools contributions for readers curious about a specific cross-section of all issues.

Artistic contribution

In the Artistic Contribution section, the latest research in the arts is expressed visually. Artists from various disciplines are welcome to present their research through striking images, accompanied by powerful words that frame their research and clarify the research process.

The Audio/visual section is the place to be for the storyteller. In this section, the author-narrator guides the public through a audio/visual record of original research in the arts. The section breaks through the boundaries of different media and allows story, sound and image to intertwine.

In the Review section, publications and events are discussed that are relevant to research in the arts. Reviews are not meant to be mere assessments, but they should rather be considered opportunities to place a given topic in a broader context which transcends personal research interests.

The Editorial serves as a brief appetizer to the contributions in a specific issue. It also gives the author the space to share an original and thought-provoking idea, based on a recent article, a personal experience or anecdote.

In search of first-hand knowledge, the authors in the Dialogue section engage in a conversation with an artist, a specialist or an author of a previously published article. In this way, the reader can witness up close the creation process of an art work, the thought process behind an idea or the critical exchange between authors.

Ex Libris

The Ex Libris section brings together short contributions on art and cultural heritage, often based on remarkable archival documents and objects. This section originated around finds from the heritage library of the Antwerp Conservatory, but also welcomes reflections on other historical objects and ephemera that illustrate how exciting and often highly topical historical research in the field of the arts can be.
