This key publication of Efva Lilja considers cause and effect, steering and empowerment in relation to artistic research based on the Swedish system; it explores how the artistic researcher can enhance art, artistic education, markets and commercial values.

The publication goes from the Swedish point of view into a European perspective. Interesting to see dance and choreography integrated into the topic of Artistic Research.
