Envisioning Networked Urban Mobilities brings together scientific reflections on the relations of art and urban mobilities and artistic research on the topic. The editors open the book by setting out the concept grounded in the exhibition curated by Aslak Aamot Kjærulff and refers to earlier work on mobilities and art generated by the Cosmobilities Network. This third volume has two sections, both consisting of short papers and illustrations. The first section is based on artists who were part of the conferences' art exhibition, and the second part is based on theoretical reflections on art and artists.
"In the emerging field of artistic research, sensory and embodied ways of knowing take center stage. At the same time, qualitative social scientists and geographers are developing a keen interest in new methodologies that draw inspiration from the arts. This timely volume on the nexus of arts and mobilities research stages an engaged dialogue between leading academic scholars and artists."
Henk Borgdorff, Academy of Creative and Performing Arts, Leiden University, the Netherlands
"Unique in its approach, this brilliant collection of essays integrates the theoretical and methodological analysis of networked urban mobilities in ways that will reshape how scholars and practitioners engage philosophically and materially with emerging entanglements of artistic, scientific, and technological imaginaries in the twenty-first century."
