Art and Research in Collaboration. An Experiment

For purchase at:
In this book, the researchers, artists, and guest authors document and reflect about the process that resulted in the ISOE exhibition through essays, artwork produced for the exhibition and documentary imagery. The experience of these cooperations/collaborations tells about the dynamics, possibilities, and limitations of academic-artistic co-working practice in general. Rather than providing definite answers, the coming together of research and art creates a third space of openings and experimental formats of reflection and engagement where the world can be conceived in new and different ways.

The book is in English, with a part of the contributions appearing in their respective original language (Arabic, Turkish, Portuguese, French, German) as well as in English translation.
