Volume 48 – The Research Turn: ‘The extent to which economic value is placed on knowledge today forces us to reconsider its social role and our relation to it.’
Research, the general category for processes of knowledge production, has become omnipresent in both education and practice. Today it’s not so important what you know but rather how you think. Progress, in this sense, is predicated by critical reflection on ways of knowing and disciplinary traditions of thought. Volume 48 – The Research Turn – the second issue in our series on learning – is dedicated to mapping the contemporary field of research in architecture, art and the social sciences. We wanted to learn from those who have been instrumental in shifting the boundaries and shaping today’s landscape of creative knowledge production. What follows is Volume 48, an issue comprised entirely of dialogues, featuring:
Anthony Acciavatti & Vere van Gool, Dag Boutsen, Lex ter Braak, Beatriz Colomina, Reinier de Graaf, DUS Architects, Tim Ingold & Judith Winter, Adrian Lahoud, Chus Martínez & Sofia Lemos, John Palmesino, Stephan Petermann, Sarah Rifky & May al-Ibrashy, Irit Rogoff & Füsun Türetken, ruangrupa, Rural Urban Framework & Land+Civilization Compositions, Supersudaca & Francisco Díaz, Henk Slager, Territorial Agency, UNStudio, Eyal Weizman, Jan Peter Wingender.
