Some of the topics discussed in the week 4 seminar included:

  • artists who work between cultures
  • ways  of thinking about artistic enquiry
  • the artistic way of conducting research
  • how the artist theorist moves between disciplines (such as history and critical theory)
  • academic vs open education

posting: As a follow-up to  seminar, write two networked or connective paragraphs* about the artist as theorist. Give specific examples related to the suggested readings, namely Graham Sullivan’s text  Artist as Theorist [ Sullivan, G. (2010). Art Practice as Research: Inquiry in the Visual Arts. SAGE.]

This is my presentation:  week4-artist-as-theorist

* connective writing consists in using hyperlinks to connect your writing to the sources of ideas expressed, namely if you talk about specific authors and artists, search their websites and create links to them in your post. More about this type of blogging here


About paula roush

I am a Lisbon-born artist based in London, UK. I am the founder of msdm, a platform for art practices that are mobile-strategies-[of]-display-[and]- mediation. It is a platform for both individual and collaborative work, shown in the context of exhibitions, publications, conferences and teaching/seminars. I work with photography, archives, found material and performance through editing strategies that investigate notions of authorship, authenticity, history and memory. I am interested in publishing as artists’ practice and as platform to explore the intersections between the roles of artist, editor and curator. My current projects look at ideas of (re) production in the work of art, resulting in publications in several formats that encompass the hand-made, the print on demand and the ebook.
