Text reference

Unfinished Thinking in and through Art (H. Borgdorff, 2015. pp. 212-223): https://www.researchcatalogue.net/profile/show-work?work=131324


"This article examines artistic research as a
form of knowledge production. It will conclude,
however, by saying that artistic research seeks
not so much to make explicit the knowledge
that art is said to produce, but rather to provide
a specific articulation of the pre-reflective,
non-conceptual content of art. It thereby invites
›unfinished thinking‹. Hence, it is not formal
knowledge that is the subject matter of artistic
research, but thinking in, through and with art."


Artistic Research = Intent; orginality; knowledge and understanding; context, documentation and dissemination; contingency.



 (kən-tĭn′jən-sē)n. pl. con·tin·gen·cies

a. An event that may occur but that is not likely or intended; a possibility.
b. A possibility that must be prepared for; a future emergency.

The hermeneutic perspective (theory and methodology of interpretation)
assumes that artistic practices and artworks
disclose the world to us. The world-revealing
power of art lies in its ability to offer us those
new vistas, experiences and insights that
affect our relationship with the world and with
ourselves. Artistic research addresses this
world-constituting and world-revealing power
of art – the ways in which we constitute and
understand the world in and through art.
