Approaching the Essay as Artistic Research (2014)

Corina Caduff

About this exposition

Up to now the essay has rarely been mentioned in the context of the discourse of artistic research. But, in fact, the essay as well as the discourse about it is shaped by a number of topoi which are very similar to the ones that are prevalent in discussions about artistic research: The essay combines modes of narrative and reflection, it occupies a contentious space in between academia and artistic practice, and its definition proves to be a constant point of controversy among its practitioners. The contribution can be understood as a plea for the reader to appreciate the essay as a method of artistic research.
