Art as Inquiry

Toward New Collaborations Between Art, Science, and Technology


Marga Bijvoet

Art as Inquiry presents an alternative approach to the history of art and technology and art in the environment since the mid-sixties. Focusing on the search for a new concept of art, and a different function for the artist, this book discusses recent developments in Art in Public Places and Media Art in terms of new modes of interdisciplinary production and collaboration. In addition, Marga Bijvoet argues, the nature of inquiry of these art works requires a 'field' interpratation, which perceives art as a set of relations in context. She suggests that this 'movement' might eventually bear the seed for a new paradigm of the visual arts.
