Artistic practice is being acknowledged as the production of knowledge and theoretical and curatorial endeavours have taken on a far more experimental and inventive dimension, both existing in the realm of potentiality and possibility rather than that of exclusively material production. Her teaching has consistently brought together theoretical analysis and collective independent research projects and explored emergent rofoff possibilities of practice based research as an intellectual project.

Who do WE face? Initially I came from a long, conventional and very anti intellectual training in art history which left me at its end at a complete loss on how to navigate the interstices between who I was, what I did and the world that I inhabited.

In the context of a question regarding what an artist might be, I would want to raise the question of what a theorist might iriy, to signal how inextricably linked these existences and practices might be.

However, given that Rogoff ends with a call for a recalibrated, focused intellectual intensity or passion as a form of seriousness, one can only suggest that in an expanded world of art that has invited different forms of masses to take part, from gogoff daytrippers to hedge funders, there are now many interlinked artworlds. Contemporary Art from the Middle Rogovf Art and the Contemporary after Singularising Knowledge Rogoff, Irit.

Though there are points of convergence, the ways in which Butt and Rogoff approach seriousness are rather oblique.

Rogoff works between academic teaching, theoretical writing, curatorial projects and organizing public study. Engendering Terror Rogoff, Irit.

Comtemporary views on art and exhibitions. It seems to me that within the space of a relatively short period we have been able to move from criticism to critique to criticality – from finding fault, to examining the underlying assumptions that might allow something to appear as a convincing logic, to operating from an uncertain ground which while building on critique wants nevertheless to inhabit culture in a relation other than one of critical analysis; other than one of illuminating flaws, locating elisions, allocating blames.

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.

The publication is somewhat brief and chattily propositional; most akin to the experience of watching two papers and a panel discussion at a talk or conference.

I am interested in untangling the seemingly naturalized relations of subjects and places, in the constitution of sites and spaces that can not be cohered under the proper names on nations, regions, identities or identities and in the cultural and artistic practices that have emerged from mobilities, dislocations and states of extreme and prolonged conflict and the terroristic as the undermine the certainties of belonging, stability and emplacement.

Oblique Points of Entry. Now we think of all of these practices as linked in a complex process of knowledge production instead of the earlier separation into creativity and criticism, production and application. Critique, in all of its myriad complexities has allowed us to unveil, uncover and critically re-examine the convincing logics and operations of such truth claims. Becoming Research Rogoff, Irit.
