The rapid growth of doctoral-level art education challenges traditional ways of thinking about academic knowledge, and yet, as Danny Butt argues in this book, the creative arts may also represent a positive blueprint for the future of the university. Synthesizing institutional history with aesthetic theory, Artistic Research in the Future Academy reconceptualizes the contemporary crisis in university education toward a valuable renewal of creative research.

Danny Butt coordinates the Master of Arts and Community Practice at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne.

Conclusion: Exiting Artistic Research
Danny Butt
'With wonderful lucidity Danny Butt takes us into the heart of a proposed solution for a non-existent problem; the invention of the research led artistic dissertation as a discovery of knowledge. Butt not only exposes the ties that bind this problem to the entangled neo-liberal world, but also refuses to indulge in a restitution of the old regimes, or any imaginary exit from institutional frameworks. Instead, he carefully and sagely explores the third option: the capacity for art to re-set the parameters of knowledge production.' – Professor Nikos Papastergiadis, University of Melbourne
