June 2011 / Issue No. 82 out now
“ARTISTIC RESEARCH”
in cooperation with Tom Holert

www.textezurkunst.de

With artistic research, the June 2011 issue of “Texte zur Kunst” addresses a theme that has been increasingly discussed in the past two decades, particularly at the level of policies on higher education. In university and academic education, there are currently signs of a trend determining art as a field of “research”—artistic research is thus a highly controversial point of reference for initiatives related to educational and research policies, even though the historical and systematic preconditions of this type of “research” are still to a large extent unclear. However, among practitioners—artists, university teachers, curators etc.—the debate on the obvious question of the century-old relationship between art and science has long been abandoned. References to the historical differentiation processes of the two disciplines and their rejection by modern avant-garde movements are not neglected, but it is now much more about—and that is the main focus of this issue—elucidating the specificity of artistic research practice and the conditions of its possibility, rather than again and again spelling out the dialectics (or synthesis) of “art” and “science.”

Plus reviews from Berlin, Los Angeles, New York, Cologne, Nuremberg, Duesseldorf, Quimper, Vienna and Madrid

Exclusive new artists’ editions:
