Art and thought, what is the nature of this relationship? What kind of thought comes from art and how do we define it?
When the art in question is academic research, how is it situated both in terms of higher education and art practice in a wider sense?

Thinking Through Art takes an innovative look at artists' experiences of undertaking doctorates. If the making of art is not simply the formulation of an object but is also the formation of complex ideas then what effect does academic enquiry have on art practice?

The artists, philosophers, art historians and cultural theorists contributing to Thinking Through Art demonstrate 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.
