Anonymous History of Intellectual Work in the Arts and Sciences
The workshop engages with the history of intellectual practice in the arts and sciences. Focus will be on the materiality of artistic processes and the plasticity of intellectual work. Looking at the anonymous character of methods and operations in the arts and sciences, the discussion aims at a notion of history no longer defined by proper names. Together we will discuss issues of collaboration, intellectual commons, or the thin line between the convergence of ideas and intellectual expropriation.
