Book launch See it Again, Say it Again, The Artist as Researcher

On september 21, 8 PM, the book See it Again, Say it Again. The Artist as Researcher, will be launched at Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (Rozenstraat 59 Amsterdam, www.smba.nl). See it Again, Say it Again, edited by Janneke Wesseling and published by Valiz, sheds light on the phenomenon of research in the visual arts. This volume has been written from the perspective of art as practice. The majority of authors are artists, while several artists provided visual contributions that elucidate research in art. The book also includes contributions by theoreticians, who analyse how artistic research works and how it is productive. What do artists actually do when they carry out research? Does it propagate better art or a new type of art, or perhaps even a new type of artists?
See it Again, Say it Again appears in the Antennae Series of Valiz, a series intended to pinpoint new lines of thought in the arts. www.valiz.nl.
