Crossing thresholds

artistic practice in times of research

Richard Jochum

pp. 101-121

This article will examine the role of the artist as a researcher in the context of a highly specialized and complex information and network society. Following structural changes in the relationship between art, research, and society at large, including higher education, and their impact on contemporary practitioners, it will establish art practice as a privileged spot to produce both unique knowledge and cultural agency. The metaphor of the threshold, interstice, or liminal space will serve as a descriptor for how the practice of an artist can be understood and used as a device for knowledge production. The article will be tied closely to my own artistic practice.
