The research at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts has its basis in an artistic practice and is aiming towards academic freedom.

Research work at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts can be in art, through art, or for art. We primarily conduct research with artistic methods, but do not rule out interdisciplinary collaborations where other methods are used.

The artistic research projects are often examples of the researcher's own method, which develops during the course of the project. Method development becomes both the project's object and method through the examination of one's own process.
