Encounters Between Writing, Art, Philosophy, and Book Making
The exposure to different knowledges and truths produces skepsis. Skepsis, the oscillating of knowledge, and the notion of artistic research: these are the fundamental ambiguities of dOCUMENTA (13), they lie at the core of its methodology, and they are also more generally characteristic of what is alive in artistic research and radical thought, which is often transdisciplinary and self-questioning. What texts might accompany an exhibition driven by an inquiry into artistic research and its politics? Bettina Funcke is an independent writer and teacher who has published widely in contemporary art journals and artist monographs. She is currently a member of the Masters Program Faculty of the Critical Theory and the Arts program at the School of Visual Arts.
