On Not Knowing: How Artists Think

Elizabeth Fisher, Rebecca Fortnum

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Bringing together theoretical discussion and examples of contemporary artistic practice, this book explores how artists formulate strategies of not knowing and 'play' within their decision-making process, and how such approaches might inform and enrich our encounters with art. With contributions from prominent practising artists, writers and academics, and drawing together insights from the related fields of art education and philosophy, On Not Knowing reflects on the nature of artistic practice today to present a multidisciplinary, multifaceted examination of the role of 'not knowing' within contemporary practice.
