Artistic Research as Practice: The Politics of Knowledge Production in Contemporary Visual Culture

May 23, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

What is meant by artistic research and what function does it perform in relation to art practices today? This research seminar will examine the working practices of artists and how research not only informs their work but is their work. Highlighting the systems of formal and informal research that go into producing artworks (and how they generate an expanded ecology of artistic production, dissemination and knowledge transfer), this seminar will also expand on key debates concerning knowledge production in contemporary art.

In critically analyzing how research becomes a foundational element in artistic practices, we will also survey the forms of knowledge production that contemporary art is increasingly associated with — ranging as they do from the speculative, fictive, transformative, archival, quasi-documentary, and empirical — and reconsider how we frame the knowledge systems that such practices produce and promote.
