Presentation – SpecLab Chapter 1.2: Speculative Computing: Basic Principles and Essential Distinctions
“With speculative computing, we moved beyond the instrumental, well-formed, and increasingly standardized business of digital humanities.”
After our readings in Holly Willis' iMAP class on research in the arts, I am just now beginning to understand the political stakes of this field I have been residing in for years. Based on my readings in the Routledge Companion to Research in the Arts, in particular “University Politics and Practice Based Research” by Torsten Kalvemark, I see now how the drive to redefine art practice as research is informed by a corporatization of the university that be seen in the larger Bologna process that has been resisted with strikes and occupations all across Europe.
