Solid research skills are crucial for artists and designers hoping to contribute viable and alternative ways of thinking to counter neoliberalism. This volume presents projects that shift the perspective, alter understanding, and open up new possibilities in the quest to discover what is not yet known or understood. This research strives for a more transdisciplinary way forward, outside the bubbles of graduation shows, gallery openings, and funding cycles. The projects are structured into twelve topical themes, each embedded in a recent news story that positions how that topic is approached by mainstream media. Responses from various academic contributors conclude each chapter.
