In recent years, most diverse disciplines have been stressing the importance of matter within the web of relationships of culture and nature. This publication focuses on this new material phenomena in arts in relation to the humanities and social sciences and brings together contributions by academic staff at the cx centre for interdisciplinary studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich as well as selected artistic work by students.
In the last years a new focus on material phenomena has become increasingly observable in the arts and sciences. Most diverse disciplines are stressing the momentum and the agency of matter, material and things and underline their status as agents within the web of relationships of culture and nature. The book Power of Material – Politics of Materiality deepens this current discourse and for the time brings materialist tendencies within the arts, design and architecture into a direct dialogue with a range of scientific approaches from a “New Materialism” within the humanities and social sciences.
This publication is the result of the first year of program at the newly established cx centre for interdisciplinary studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich.
This book is part of the publication Series of the cx centre for interdisciplinary studies at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich.
