Art as Research?

Klimakunstforschung (literally “Climate Art Research”)

Climate change is pushing science to its limits. Hybrid projects combining art and research, which have become an increasingly frequent phenomenon in recent times, gain unexpected relevance within this context. The “Klimakunstforschung” publication presents 16 artists whose climate-related work involves the application/deconstruction of scientific methods, co-operation with researchers, or the formulation of their own approach to knowledge. Do these approaches lead to a change in artistic and scientific methods? And can they contribute to efforts to tackle climate issues? Five concluding interviews see academics from the fields of climate research, sociology, the history of science, and art history discuss these questions.
