Inter Arts Center (IAC) is a platform for artistic research and experimentation. We support and collaborate with artistic researchers and the institutions behind them. IAC is part of the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts and works closely with the three academies Malmö Art Academy, Malmö Academy of Music and Malmö Theatre Academy.

Artistic research was established at the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts in 2000, and is today a young, and yet established discipline in Sweden and several other countries, like Norway, Finland, Austria and United Kingdom.

Our aim is to present and engage in the outcome and the formats of artistic research – as a practice-based scientific discipline – but also to include and investigate connections to the extensive research-based art that exist outside academic contexts, e.g. interdisciplinary projects and collaborations.
