RUUKKU 18: Responsibility in/with/for arts and artistic practices

In this issue of RUUKKU, we are unpacking the notion of responsibility in/with/for arts and artistic research with five expositions and three voices. The RUUKKU issue Responsibility supplements the Art of Research VII conference organized on 3-4 December 2020 at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Finland. Expanding the discussions from the conference, we invited scholars whose work tackles the idea of responsibility to contribute in this issue.

Responsibility intertwines with the essential questions of power, historicities, control, freedom, availability and care, which accompany the acknowledgement that we inhabit this planet with other people, species and materials. Responsibility has often been discussed as part of politics, justice, ethics and judgement, linking it with power and human agency. When we think of someone being responsible for something, we assume that that person takes ownership of their decisions and their consequences.
