Fact-finding artists

A fact-finding artist works by accessing a context, finding underexposed or overlooked facts and reporting them to the public in the frame of own artistic practice.

Artist Access Initiative is an organizational framework designed to represent and support work of artists involved in fact-finding missions.

Fact-finding in art

Fact-finding can be found within the frames of art practices like reportage drawing, participatory art, relational art, site-specific art, art in context, performance art, urban art, altermodern, conceptual art and others.

Facilitating access

A tool for facilitating fact-finding missions is the Artist Pass.

The Artist Pass mediates between the artists and the context they are interested in, by providing credentials, community support, promotion, and by strengthening the fact-finding as common practice.
