New modes of epistemic relationships in artistic research
Research leads to new insights rupturing the existent fabric of knowledge. Situated in the still evolving field of artistic research, this book investigates a fundamental quality of this process. Building on the lessons of deconstruction, artistic research invents new modes of epistemic relationships that include aesthetic dimensions.
Under the heading transposition, seventeen artists,
musicians, and theorists explain how one thing may turn into another in a
spatio-temporal play of identity and difference that has the power to expand
into the unknown. By connecting materially concrete positions in a way familiar
to artists, this book shows how moves can be made between established positions
and completely new ground. In doing so, research changes from a process that
expands knowledge to one that creatively reinvents it.
