Schwab, Michael. “Expositionality.” In 'Artistic Research. Charting a Field in Expansion,' edited by Paulo de Assis and Lucia D’Errico, 27–45. London and New York: Rowman & Littlefield, 2019.
The chapter introduces the notion of 'exposition' that is central to the Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) and most of my work on the articulation of artistic practice as research. It discusses the term itself, its grammatical use as well as alternatives. In the second part, the text links this to two key strands, STS and the history of science as well as theories of contemporary art in an attempt to anchor expositionality within both, developments in research and art practice.
