Research project A project about the epistemological relation between social science and art.
Contemporary art increasingly works with the same, or adjacent, methods, concepts and theories as social science. At the same time, social science is incorporating methods and concepts borrowed from cultural disciplines, such as semiology and linguistics. Both art and social science engage themselves with issues such as gender analysis, justice, welfare, democracy etc but from different disciplinary standpoints and environments. The project aims to research, develop and bridge this epistemological separation Because art could gain from the structure and epistemological clarity that (ideally) guides social science, which in turn would gain from the artistic experience and professional methods for establishing constructions and representations of/in the social.
