Pragmatics and Problematics: Art and the Philosophy of Error

This concept paper outlines a creative framework for questioning the hierarchy of values that are associated with the cultural opposition, ‘expert’ and ‘amateur’. The creative framework is set up as a parameter for exploring how the work of art in alliance with the work of thought can appropriate what is problematic or contested in material and discursive practices, which give rise to a stable, coherent and rational individual; the embodiment of an expertise who desires to be right.
