Beyond Books

Beyond Books is a series of online presentations that aims to give an understanding of possible strategies and interactions between artistic practices and the general field of research and its distributional systems. The series poses the question of how artistic practices can be a tool for distribution of research and a hub of knowledge exchange, and how artistic practices are inspired by the outlets of research.
Three artists have been invited for the series. They present art works in different stages of becoming, therefore opening up to the complexity and entanglements of their artistic process.

The presentations orbit around contemporary socio-economic questions and endeavours, how art can be thought of as a possible tool of distribution for theory and other outputs of critical thought. The presentations will be live-streamed from the exhibition Tracking Distribution that opens 27 November at Index and can therefore be seen as a distributional extension of the physical exhibition.

Participating artists are Isabella Solar Villaseca, Vibe Overgaard and Lou Mouw
