When do words matter?
Even since early modernity (e.g. Vasari), there have been artists in all kinds of artistic disciplines to whom writing and speaking critically on art and other artists has been mostly productive for the innovation and reinvention of their own artistic practice, even up to the extent that one could easily speak of a continuum of artistic criticality.
Words matter to these artists, their verbal articulations lead to a sharpening of their artistic intuition. Would it be possible and/or desirable to found today's increasing demand 'to write' within art education and research on that very artistic tradition? And if so, what does that take, e.g. in relation to how we understand 'writing' and making a thesis?
After his presentation Tom van Imschoot will engage in a round table conversation with guest auditors Nienke Terpsma and Sarah Charalambides, organizers of the evening Florian Göttke and David Maroto (DAI's Associate PhD Research Collective) and the audience. The central topic will be the relation between art practice, writing, and intuition.
