NEW BOOK: »Kunstforschung als ästhetische Wissenschaft«
New publication on Artistic Research by Martin Tröndle and Julia Warmers (Ed.) with an essay on Materials Research as a transdisciplinary process by Thorsten Klooster and Heike Klussmann.
"Art research, artistic research, art-based research or research through, with, about arts are currently popular terms. However, one can speculate about what exactly is meant here, especially when following the international discussion of these terms."
The publication »Kunstforschung als ästhetische Wissenschaft« is situated within this discussion. Art research as »aesthetic science« is conceived as a process that utilizes artists specific knowledge, working methods, and competence and applies them to other contexts outside of the art system. It is neither research about art that then lies in the field of science of art, nor is it research with art that genuinely characterizes artistic production. Central to the discussion are forms of sensual insight that are combined with scientific practices to generate new knowledge.
