With ‘Track Report: The first decade’, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp presents an overview of 10 years of publishing research in/as art. Between 2009 – 2020, Track Report published fifty-four issues. Spanning from rather conventional looking textbook editions to alternative bearers as fold-out posters and vinyl records: all of them, in one way or another, represent the strategy and the status of artistic research being conducted in and around the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. The red thread running throughout all these publications is their materiality and plasticity. Being printed and distributed, Track Report goes against the tendency of radical digitization. This physical embodiment of edgy research reflects also the status of the Academy as a research community.
