BEEFERMAN, Leah; KAILA, Tuukka
If you show me what you know, can I tell you what i see?
How does the knowledge resulting from artistic research accumulate and how is it accessed and referred to in the work of other artists? How do the individual descriptive systems of artists differ from those built collectively by scientists? How do artists and institutions respond to the diversity of their publics?
The artist’s book If you show me what you know, can I tell you what I see? presents of a slowly unfolding conversation between the artists Leah Beeferman and Tuukka Kaila. Drawing on their
respective artistic praxis, pedagogical work and literary research the authors focus on collaboration, knowledge and abstraction in the field of visual art. The text is accompanied by a selection of the artists’ visual notes on the topics under discussion.
