Art & Research


Issue 2 of the Glasgow School of Art's e-journal in fine art research, Art & Research, has just been published.
Art and Research is an artist-led, internationally peer-assessed e-journal of Research in Fine Art Practice, focused upon questions, contexts and methodologies of artistic research and practice. Art & Research aims to serve professional artists and academics, curators and critics, artistic researchers, postgraduate and doctoral research students and undergraduates, and to inform current pedagogical thought in a global context.
Issue 2 is focused on the work of French philosopher Jacques Rancière and includes papers from the two-day conference Aesthetics and Politics: With and Around Jacques Rancière co-organized by Sophie Berrebi and Marie-Aude Baronian at the University of Amsterdam on 20 and 21 June 2006. It includes the previously unpublished text of Rancières plenary lecture delivered at the conference and a new interview with the philosopher; it also includes a transcript of an exchange with Rancière which followed the papers presented by Stephen Wright and Jonathan Lahey Dronsfield which also appear here.
