The Way We Work Now
Practice driven research has become a paradigm shift in contemporary knowledge production as well as an opportunity to repoliticise work through how it is done rather than what its subject matter is. Relational Knowledges, Docu Dramatisation, mimicry of bureaucratic and managerial strategies and computational logics have produced new opportunities for criticality and new permissions for positioning knowledge as intervention.
Irit Rogoff is a writer, educator, curator and organiser. She is Professor of Visual Culture at Goldsmiths, University of London, a department she founded in 2002. Rogoff works at the meeting ground between contemporary practices, politics and philosophy. Her current work is on new practices of knowledge production and their impact on modes of research, under the title of The Way We Work Now (forthcoming). As part of the collective freethought Rogoff was one of the artistic directors of the Norwegian Triennial The Bergen Assembly, 2016.
