Abstract [en]

In this article I discuss the possibility of and the necessity for dissident researchers in academia. I investigate the strategies of interruption as methods of engaging with the institution through artistic research and approaches. Art as a dissensual activity turns artistic research into a dissident research that can serve to question academic consensus rather than conforming to its established structure.

In order to construct a dissident researcher, I go through three short architectural narrations of three places: a prison (as discipline), a school of architecture (as artistic research) and a library (as dominant discourse). These three narrations are combined with three formulae: amateur, fiction, misperformance or disloyalty; each acts as certain characteristics of dissidence that are pertinent to an ongoing micro-project explained here. Together, these aim to raise the question: How does perceiving artistic research as dissident research modify conventional evaluation systems and set up new evaluating strategies based on politics of dissidence?
