See it again, say it again

The Artist as Researcher

See it Again, Say it Again sheds light on the phenomenon of research in the visual arts. In ‘artistic research’, practical acts (the making) and theoretical reflection (the thinking) go hand in hand, in a manner similar to creating and thinking being inextricably linked with artistic practice.

This volume has been written from the perspective of art as practice. The majority of the authors are artists, while several artists provided visual contributions that elucidate the phenomenon of research in art. There are also contributions from theoreticians, who analyse how artistic research works (and how it is productive). What do artists actually do when they carry out research? What does artistic research yield for art? Does it propagate better art or a new type of art, or perhaps even a new type of artist?
