"Thinking Through Art takes an innovative look at artists' experiences of undertaking doctorates. If the making of art is not simply the formation of an object, but also the formulation of complex ideas, then what effect does academic inquiry have on art practice?" "The artists, philosophers, art historians and cultural theorists contributing to Thinking Through Art address the complexity of interpreting art as research and suggest ways in which the visual in relation to the verbal could more actively engage intellectual debate."--BOOK JACKET.
