A Journal of Ideas, Contexts and Methods
Volume 2. No. 1. Summer 2008 (ISSN 1752 6388)
Art and Research is an artist-led, internationally peer-assessed e-journal of Research in Fine Art Practice, focused upon questions, contexts and methodologies of artistic research and practice. Art & Research aims to serve professional artists and academics, curators and critics, artistic researchers, postgraduate and doctoral research students and undergraduates, and to inform current pedagogical thought in a global context.
This issue is focused on the work of French philosopher Jacques RanciÃ¨re and includes papers from the two-day conference Aesthetics and Politics: With and Around Jacques RanciÃ¨re co-organized by Sophie Berrebi and Marie-Aude Baronian at the University of Amsterdam on 20 and 21 June 2006. It includes the previously unpublished text of RanciÃ¨res plenary lecture delivered at the conference and a new interview with the philosopher; it also includes a transcript of an exchange with RanciÃ¨re which followed the papers presented by Stephen Wright and Jonathan Lahey Dronsfield which also appear here.
