It invites a re-examination of the relationship between research and forms adopted for presenting, communicating and disseminating it. Not limited to a single discipline, this event brings together artists, curators, writers, critics and scholars addressing questions of creative-critical hybridity through talks, performances, screenings, readings and installations.

  • Marquard Smith, John Beck (Westminster)
