About this book

This book presents distinct perspectives from both geographically-oriented creative practices and geographers working with arts-based processes.  In doing so, it fills a significant gap in the already sizeable body of non-representational discourse by bringing together images and reflections on performances, art practice, theatre, dance, and sound production alongside theoretical contributions and examples of creative writing.  It considers how contemporary art making is being shaped by spatial enquiry and how geographical research has been influenced by artistic practice.  It provides a clear and concise overview of the principles of non-representational theory for researchers and practitioners in the creative arts and, across its four sections, demonstrates the potential for non-representational theory to bring cultural geography and contemporary art closer than ever before.

Reviews

“Weaving together tales by scholars and practitioners, Non-representational Theory and Creative Arts is an important and timely contribution to the ongoing dialogue between cultural geography and creative art practice. Ambitious in scope, varied in style and innovative in format, the collection takes the reader on a compelling journey through stitches and studios, trees and art installations, water streams and ruins, geothermal vapours and musical tunes. It pushes for new tropes and vocabularies to talk about familiar and unfamiliar atmospheres, places, gestures, and all that stirs and eludes the human senses and imagination.” (Veronica Della Dora, Royal Holloway University of London)

“Over the past fifteen years, non-representational theories have become central to the social sciences and humanities, inaugurating new ways of conceptualising and approaching the world. Featuring a multidisciplinary range of contributors who have been at the forefront of non-representational styles of thought and research, Non-Representational Theory and the Creative Arts is unique for its sustained and experimental engagement with the practices, styles and techniques of research that non-representational theories invite and offer. As such, it will become an invaluable resource for researchers hoping to learn new ways of encountering and presenting the world.” (Ben Anderson, Durham University, UK)

“How might we envision a geography in the making, in the moving? With thought-provoking contributions that activate the affective force of the geologic, Non-Representational Theory and the Creative Arts explores the thresholds that move geography beyond representation toward its creative force. Entering the space of encounter, this book tests the limits of writing in a field that has always explored what lurks at the interstice of line and fold.” (Erin Manning, Concordia University, Montréal)
