Field Notes, the half-yearly publication of workspacebrussels, presents interviews with artists in residence, contributions by artists and essays. Through an intensive dialogue between author and artist, the texts in Field Notes unveil the rich flurry of artistic activities at workspacebrussels.
The authors contributing to Field Notes closely follow the creation process of the artists through studio visits and interviews. Just like the showings during Working Title Platform, their texts are snap shots of a work in progress.
Field Notes is also a vehicle to foreground, contextualise and reflect on artistic threads that run through the platforms or emerge from the residencies.
The title of this publication evokes this preliminary state: the notion “field note” was originally used in anthropology and refers to the notes taken by anthropologists to register their observations. These notes are descriptive and focus on first hand observations and experiences that precede definite conclusions.
