https://leonardo.info/review/2022/08/artistic-research-in-performance-through-collaboration


Reviewed by Jacob Thompson-Bell, this review positively offers an overview of the books content, its unique approach and it's research insights, noting that "This volume of essays on artistic research in performance through collaboration, edited by Martin Blain and Helen Minors, adds a constructive new dimension to the literature on artistic research, drawing together for the first time a series of essays exploring the knowledge value of collaborative art making."


"In Part I, Blain and Minors suggest a holistic, broad approach to artistic collaboration, which attends to the partnerships, ethical frameworks, performance practices, and modes of dissemination through which the work will be carried out."


He goes on to overview part 2 also: "This volume of essays on artistic research in performance through collaboration, edited by Martin Blain and Helen Minors, adds a constructive new dimension to the literature on artistic research, drawing together for the first time a series of essays exploring the knowledge value of collaborative art making."


The conclusion of the review, notes "this is a wide-ranging and practically useful contribution to the existing literature on artistic research, and it is welcome to see researchers putting collaborative research under the spotlight, rather than uncritically embracing it as a universally good thing."


Thank you to Jacob for writing this review.
