Free Content Círculo de Investigación Artística: New materialist pedagogies of resistance

In response to artistic training that is overly technical, the Circle of Artistic Research (C.A.R.) was organized to rearticulate the relationship of theory to art production. Their work helps understand how art education can extend the arguments of new materialism by creating alternative research formats that restore the relevance to the material. This article argues that the strategies in practice as research that the C.A.R. adopts emphasize materiality without neglecting content in a matter-meaning entanglement, with a collective and rhizomatic organization, and producing situated knowledge. The interpretative method is framed by the new materialisms of the school of Rosi Braidotti promoting critique and creativity as a form of resistance.
