bookrelease: access to resources – an urban agenda

Tags: , ,

Where: Royal Institute of Art
When: November 27, 18:00 (press 17:00-18:00)


Editor Henrietta Palmer

“The urban environment is in a constant state of change, a constant state of ‘becoming’. Each period in history has had its specific driving forces for change and corresponding solutions for directing change towards the city imagined and desired at that time. But our current era differs dramatically from earlier epochs as it faces seemingly overwhelming forces like the depletion of fossil fuels and climate change with their unforeseen impacts on the urban. Looking beyond the crunch, Access to Resources brings together a multidisciplinary group of major thinkers and practitioners alongside Resources participants to offer scenarios and visions for a complex yet hopeful picture of an urban future in common.”

After 19.15: Bar, DJ Lap-See Lam + Jin Mustafa

new book on artistic research


The Exposition of Artistic Research: Publishing Art in Academia

Edited by Michael Schwab & Henk Borgdorff
Leiden University Press 2014
isbn 978-908-72-8164-9

The Exposition of Artistic Research: Publishing Art in Academia introduces the pioneering concept of ‘expositions’ in the context of art and design research, where practice needs to be exposed as research to enter academic discourse. It brings together reflective and methodological approaches to exposition writing from a variety of artistic disciplines including fine art, music and design, which it links to questions of publication and the use of technology. The book proposes a novel relationship to knowledge, where the form in which this knowledge emerges and the mode in which it is communicated makes a difference to what is known.
