What does art know? And how? Twenty artists discuss the epistemology of artistic creation
What is artistic research? How does art know? How does artistic thinking develop through artistic processes and takes shape in artworks? These questions form the departure point for this new book by artist, academic and curator Lucy Cotter (born 1973). In 20 conversations with leading artists, she maps out an epistemology of artistic creation today, exemplifying an approach that is dynamically engaged with other fields, but which thinks beyond concepts into bodily and material knowledge that exceeds language, revolutionizing our perception of art from the ground up.Artists include: Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Katayon Arian, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Sher Doruff, Em'kal Eyongakpa, Ryan Gander, Liam Gillick, Natasha Ginwala, Sky Hopinka, Manuela Infante, Euridice Zaituna Kala, Grada Kilomba, Sarat Maharaj, Emma Moore, Rabih Mrou , Christian Nyampeta, Yuri Pattison, Falke Pisano, Sarah Rifky, Samson Young and Katarina Zdjelar.
