How to Relate – Knowledge, Arts, Practices

Annika Haas, Maximilian Haas, Hanna Magauer, Dennis Pohl (Hg.): How to Relate – Knowledge, Arts, Practices. Bielefeld: transcript 2021.

New publication: Volume six of the book series published by the DFG Research Training Group “Knowledge in the Arts” with transcript Verlag.
The series is edited by Barbara Gronau and Kathrin Peters, and the designer is Jenny Baese.

Relations are not given, they are made together. This volume examines relationalities as processual negotiations between the arts and sciences, between built space and the social body, between theoretical and poetic-artistic writing and speaking, between form, material and action. The plea is for a knowledge politics of the arts that starts from a radical entanglement of theoretical, aesthetic, medial and social practices and techniques.

The book is currently only available in Open Access. Further information about this book can be found here.
