It is a sphere of unstable knowledge.
It is a contradiction fit to live in.
Excellence in research on art and design is sought beyond academy.
These excellences are barbarian in a double meaning: foreign, strange or brutal, but also magnificent, astonishing and remarkable.
This is a question about rigorous forms in creative research; a question that shifts between the ritual and the discipline, between the experiment and the experience, between singular and standardized forms.
1 The curator Emily Pethick outlines the notion of “unstable knowledge “. It is a form of knowledge made of different points of view and conflict zones. In Pethick’s words, it is a knowledge that “did not rest with a singular viewpoint, but contained many differing, and often conflictual, perspectives “ (Pethick, 2009).
