Place Studies in Art, Media, Science and Technology
Historical Investigations on the Sites and the Migration of Knowledge

Edited by Andreas Broeckmann and Gunalan Nadarajan

VDG Publishers, Weimar, 2009

The volume presents seventeen studies about the complex interactions  
between art, media, science, and technology, based on papers  
presented at the international conference 're:place 2007' (Berlin).

Zooming in on specific places and historical moments, the authors  
describe exemplary instances of the fruitful interaction and  
collaboration between artists, engineers, and scientists. Several  
analyses of the sites and trajectories of interdisciplinary knowledge  
production, as well as their ideological and institutional  
conditions, put a focus on areas such as the early Soviet Union, or  
the internationally dynamic period of the 1960s and 70s which is  
covered in essays about collaborative situations in Madrid, Sydney,  
and the Canadian West coast, as well as in Poland, Sweden, and Japan.  
Other essays deal with the work of individuals like Vilém Flusser,  
Siegfried Giedion, and Jacqueline Tyrwhitt. Beyond the presentation  
of key moments in the history of art and science collaboration, the  
volume seeks to raise methodological questions about conceptions of  
history that take the multiple intersections between academic  
disciplines and cultural practices into account, and use them for  
enriching our understanding of creativity, variation, and historical
