TROUBLING RESEARCH: PERFORMING KNOWLEDGE IN THE ARTS. Carola Dertnig and Diedrich Diederichsen. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 480 pp. 20 x 14 cm. ISBN 9783956790201 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Beginning in 2008/9, a group of Vienna-based artists, art historians, and cultural theorists embarked on a journey of experimental research to test their understanding of individual artistic/theoretical practices. Following Foucault's model of 'problematization', they worked independently and collaboratively to reconsider the interdependence of art and research categories against the politics and economics of the European art educational system. Conceived and designed by artist/curator/author Johannes Porsch, Troubling Research is organized into six sections or "books" aimed at evading standard protocol research reports. Scholarly essays and case studies, interviews, notes, and visual statements are combined to create multi-level narratives of text, typography, and images in which analysis, allegory and poetic association overlap and intersect. With contributions by Carola Dertnig, Diedrich Diederichsen, Tom Holert, Johanna Schaffer, Stefanie Seibold, and Axel Stockburger.
