EP0 - Portrait : Erin Manning and Brian Massumi on Research-Creation
Following the publication of “Pensée en acte, vingt propositions pour la recherche-création” (Presses du réel, 2018), we met with Erin Manning and Brian Massumi asking them six questions towards sharing their philosophical vision of research-creation. This new book offers a partial translation of their 2014 work “Thought in the Act, Passages in the Ecology of Experience”.
Erin Manning is a full professor in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia University and holds a University Research Chair in Relational Art and Philosophy. She is also the director of the SenseLab, an international network founded in 2004 that explores the intersections between art practice and philosophy through the sensing body in movement. As well as authoring many books, her artistic work has been presented at major art exhibitions internationally.
Brian Massumi is now an independent researcher after being a professor in the Department of Communication Sciences at the Université de Montréal. He is widely known for his English-language translations of recent French philosophy, including Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's “A Thousand Plateaus”. He has published many books of his own and is now involved in the creation of the 3 Ecologies Institute, an autonomous organization dedicated to participatory experimentation in research-creation.
