Thinking Through Practice: Art as Research in the Academy

Each of the writers in this contentious and thought-provoking collection is an artist and fine art educator at the School of Art, RMIT University. In the School of Art it is understood that the processes of undertaking the creative project - the experimental works and the testing of ideas right through to the finished artwork - is the research itself.
Thinking Through Practice shows what the process of 'thinking' might mean through art and its practices. Each chapter moves us into closer proximity with what it means to think through making and all that is involved in sustained forms of creative practice - questioning, reviewing, reflecting, analysing, performing, speculating, relating, remembering, critiquing, constructing and ultimately further questioning.
