A Critical Reader in Contemporary Art

On Knowledge Production: A Critical Reader in Contemporary Art presents a selection of newly commissioned and anthologized texts by a diverse group of artists, art historians, philosophers, and theorists who have engaged with thinking critically about the field of art as a site for the production of knowledge. The body of contributions in this reader comprise a series of critical inquiries, thought experiments, documents of practices, and tentative propositions about the status of producing knowledge in contemporary art, which vary widely in perspective, approach, and form. This selection unfolds different entry points and layers, unwrapping the (often) uncritically adopted notion of "art producing knowledge" and casting diverse views on the context, meaning, and potential of this understanding of art practices today.
