The Danish philosopher and cultural analyst Søren Kjørup is research advisor for staff and management at Bergen National Academy of the Arts. Previously he was for many years professor of the history and theory of the humanities at Roskilde University in Denmark. He is known internationally for his contributions to the philosophy of pictorial languages (e.g. "Pictorial Speech Acts", in Erkenntniss, 1978), and his very early, distinctive version of the institutional theory of art (e.g. "Art Broadly and Wholly Conceived" in Aagaard-Mogensen(ed.), Culture and Art: An Anthology, 1976). Within the field of artistic research Kjørup has written e.g. "Another Way of Knowing: Baumgarten, Aesthetics, and the Concept of Sensuous Cognition" (Sensuous Knowledge 1, Bergen National Academy of the Arts, 2006) and "Pleading for Plurality" (in Biggs & Karlsson (eds.), The Routledge Companion to Research in the Arts, 2010).

Exposition: Taking the Book Apart (01/01/2011) by Sarah Alford

The submission has a very interesting theme (for me: introducing Ellen Gates Starr) and it tells us about a great amount of work in both getting to know Ellen Gates Starr, and the use of her work, opinions etc. as a stepping stone for artistic production.

 

The submission, however, only gives a little taste of both the traditional research part of Sarah Alford’s work and of her artistic contribution.

 

I liked reading and looking at this submission, but it is not a heavy contribution. A little taste of something that might be developed: both when it comes to what more might be told about Ellen Gates Starr (and the early Arts and Crafts Movement in the USA), and when it comes to presenting the creative work. If we were talking about movies, I would say that this is a good trailer that makes us interested in getting more.
