How art-school research skills can inform and transform other fields from politics to science
Art-school students learn that research skills are essential if they are to contribute alternative ways of thinking, not least to counter the neoliberal forces influencing the globe. How can these research skills unique to art academies find wider application?
The essays and projects presented here look at art-school research practices that can inform the worlds of culture, industry, housing, education, politics, public space, advertising and science.
The projects are structured into 12 themes ranging from “The Climate Crisis” to “Politics of Public Space.” Each is embedded in a recent news story that positions how that topic is discussed in the press. Each chapter ends with a response from an academic.
