OPEN FIELDS. Art and Science Research Practices in the Network Society

Volume No: 15
Editors: Rasa Smite, Raitis Smits, Armin Medosch

This Open Fields volume presents artistic research that is located in the contested territory between academic knowledge production and independent creative practices. The book presents the interwoven histories of art and science in the digital age, by investigating the changing role of art in the network society. In previous volumes, we opened multiple conversations about how art can not only criticize and thereby provide a mirror for society, but how it can also more directly intervene in material and social structures. We are now continuing this discussion by asking: How can art and other creative practices meaningfully contribute to the environmental, technological and scientific challenges of our time?
