The aim of the text collection Kunst_Kontext_Kunst is to sharpen the term, the concept and the operations of the "catchall term" context by examining artistic and theoretical works (theory texts, video installations, a perception model, in-situ installations, site-specific interventions and Institutional Critique), to understand our artistic and theoretical objects of investigation as well as our epistemic framings and, last but not least, ourselves as academics in the context of, among others, institutions, methods and media. In this way, we presuppose ecologising, namely context- or environmental relationalities.
