Michael Schwab


Dr. Michael Schwab is a London-based artist and artistic researcher who investigates postconceptual uses of technology in a variety of media including photography, drawing, print-making, and installation art. He is tutor at the Royal College of Art, London, and the Zurich University of the Arts as well as research fellow at the Orpheus Institute, Ghent.

He is co-initiator and inaugural Editor-in-Chief of JAR, Journal for Artistic Research.

JAR is a peer-reviewed, biannual journal, whose goal is to publish original research from artists of all disciplines and promote the renegotiation of art's relationship to academia by coupling an innovative approach to publishing with peer-reviewing and scholarly rigour. A free, online resource, the journal attracts an international readership. With the aim of displaying and documenting practice in a manner that respects artistic modes of presentation, JAR uses the Research Catalogue, which provides a free-to-use online writing space where text can be woven together with image, audio and video material.

The result is a journal that promotes experimental approaches to 'writing' and provides a unique 'reading' experience, while carefully fulfilling the expectations of a peer-reviewed academic journal.
