Senses of Embodiment: Art, Technics, Media


Edited By Mika Elo and Miika Luoto

This volume is a collection of essays that presents both theory- and practice-based approaches to questions concerning the embodiment of sense.
Exploring the opening of meaning in sensible configurations, the texts also address the medial structures – at once aesthetic, bodily and technical – that condition our access to whatever makes sense to us.
The texts show in various ways how these phenomena call for trans-disciplinary research, and how theoretical or philosophical questioning gains from the experimental possibilities of artistic research.

Art / Knowledge / Theory


Edited by Suzanne Anker and Sabine Flach Art / Knowledge / Theory is a book series that explores artistic modes of expression as forms of knowl­ edge production. It focuses on transdisciplinary, epistemological and methodological approaches to contemporary art. Linking artistic and scienti0 c practices, tools, techniques and theories, the volumes investigate the cultures of aesthetics and science studies as they relate to works of art. Art / Knowledge / Theory analyzes the role of art in contemporary culture by probing the philosophical, historical and social parameters by which images are accessed and assessed. As an amplification - as well as intervention or even a correction - to historical research, this series questions the state of the art and knowledge within a culture, characterized by technology and science.
