FORUM+ is an international peer reviewed journal for research and. It provides a rich insight into the current state of the art and trends in different fields of artistic research.

FORUM+ stimulates the dialogue between research in the arts, critical reflection and the social context in which it is established: this way, the journal offers a platform for creative approaches and critical reflections on our world.

The arts are deliberately defined in the broadest sense. The interdisciplinary profile of FORUM+ offers room for discipline-related topics, but also allows for the exposure of cross-links and differences. The name reflects this intention: the journal wants to be a forum for the exchange of ideas, with a plus.
