Radical Reversibility

Radical Reversibility (RR) is a practice and research-based arts platform interested in the interplay between image, gaze and perception.

RR functions as a network and a laboratory for practice and theory where artists, writers, curators and academics seek to contextualize their own work within new practices and engage in discourses in and beyond the arts.

As a working method RR explores the possibilities of what we call ‘Research through Images’, a mode of visual thinking and image-making that is speculative, essayistic, and experimental. RR seeks to find out how ‘Research through Images’ can be made productive as a specific form of knowledge within artistic and other modes of scientific research.
bio
