The Conflict of the Faculties looks at the emerging field of artistic research as a place of crossover between the artistic and academic worlds. Henk Borgdorff carefully examines how artistic research broadens and deepens traditional academic approaches to studying art, while observing the tension between the two disparate fields in terms of methods and practices.
“Well-written and well-argued, this book will probably become a reference for many studies to come and required reading for anyone active in this domain.”—Frans-Willem Korsten, Erasmus University Rotterdam and Leiden University, the Netherlands
