Welcome to FORUM+

FORUM+ is the journal for research and the arts in the Low Countries. It offers interested culture lovers an in-depth look at current trends in research in the fields of music, theatre, dance and the (audio-)visual arts.


October 2022

Earlier this year, FORUM+ launched the dossier (Trans)literate art | De kunst van (ver)talen. Various contributions in this October issue will elaborate on this dossier. We invite readers to engage in further dialogue with these texts. Language, diversity and power are complex themes that constantly provoke new perspectives and continuously stimulate us to exchange our insights.

A new dossier of FORUM+ collects contributions on the art school as an ecosystem in the 21st century. The editors explicitly welcome contributions on practices involving the relationship between research and the art school, as well as visual essays that can be linked to this theme.

Previous issue: May 2022

Sometimes we need to take some time to reflect, as the authors in this new May issue do. In the various contributions, they provide us with an insight into their own journey. These contributions from a wide variety of disciplines seem to enter into an unexpected but interesting dialogue. We would also like to thank you, the reader, 'for your continuous efforts'; and above all, let us remind one another to not take each other for granted.
