How short is a sound, or how long does it take to think?

Rifkin takes up Jaques Ranciere’s notion of the ‘aesthetic regime of art’ to explore possibilities of an aesthetic regime of writing on art, and the consequences of art writing for other practices.

MFA Art Writing at Goldsmiths’ is a programme for practitioners who want to develop work that addresses art as writing, writing as art, and writing about art.

Professor Michael Newman

Michael Newman is Professor in Art Writing at Goldsmiths, an art critic and historian.

His research follows two threads, the first is around the idea and practice of the trace in art and philosophy: the traces produces by artists; the relation of the trace to memory; the trace of the other in ethics; and the second concerns the image in its fascination and relation to language. www.michaelnewman.net/
