What Is at Stake: qu’est-ce que l’enjeu? Paradoxes: Problematics: Perspectives in Artistic Research Today

  • Giaco Schiesser
Part of the Arts, Research, Innovation and Society book series (ARIS)


The text summarizes and analyzes thirty years of international artistic research practice by sketching its paradoxes, problematics, voids and perspectives. And it puts forward a proposal with necessary strategies and the need to develop an epistemology for the future that allows artistic research to become a crucial practice far beyond the artistic research community and the art world only—a crucial practice for the whole society and its urgent demand for a new “aesthetics of existence”.
