new eipcp project: creating worlds

Creating Worlds is a multi-annual research project that investigates the relationship between art production and knowledge production in the context of the transformations and crises of contemporary capitalism. Creativity becomes an ambivalent term here, “creating worlds” meaning a modulating procedure in cognitive capitalism and societies of control, but also an emerging political dimension of creativity as political imagination and invention of new lines of flight, new struggles, new worlds.

Creating Worlds will be developed in the years 2009 to 2012, involve research, publication and artistic projects and is structured around three thematic plateaus: A Critique of Cognitive Capitalism, The Knowledge Factory and its Discontents, The Overlaps of Art and Knowledge Production.
