Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The state of 'not knowing' or engaging with the unknown is an important aspect of all research. For artists it is crucial, as the making process often balances a strong sense of direction with a more playful or meditative state of exploration and experimentation. Art practice is not only a valid mode of philosophical enquiry but also provides ways of thinking and articulating knowledge that are not utilized by other disciplines.

On Not Knowing emerges from an interdisciplinary symposium organized by Kettle's Yard, University of Cambridge, in 2009. The volume, particularly relevant within the current emergence of the pedagogic turn within art practice and curation, is an important contribution to current debates around the creative process.

On Not Knowing puts the artist's voice at the heart of these discussions and will inspire anyone interested in visual culture, interdisciplinarity, philosophy and art in education.
