Editorial: Catalyses

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialScientificpeer-review


The RUUKKU special issue Catalyses supplements the Art of Research VI conference organized on 29-30 November 2017 at Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Helsinki, Finland. Catalysis refers to the acceleration of a reaction by some agent that promotes that change. In the context of artistic research, catalysis can be understood as an action that causes reactions and continues to activate critical thinking that provokes further actions and reactions. This special issue of RUUKKU explores the various forms, interpretations and possibilities of catalysis, as it is related to artistic research activity. The catalyst can be the artist-researcher herself or the artwork itself; challenging established ideas and producing new thinking, new knowledge, new experience, new praxes and poetics.
