The Visual Research Centre was the former facility dedicated to visual arts research from initial concepts to final exposition for DJCAD at Dundee Contemporary Arts. VRC provided a platform for debate around cultural production and was the primary DJCAD resource for revealing and disseminating research. At the heart of the VRC was Centrespace, an experimental flexible studio or gallery where research outcomes were premiered. VRC also housed the Centre for Artists Books and Visual Publishing, a unique artists' book collection and a specialist printing production facility. The Rewind research project archive, which has conserved early British video art, was viewed in the Rewind Microcinema, and VRC was also home to DJCAD's PhD community. These facilities were relocated in their entirety to DJCAD in 2018.
