Antennae Series, Arts in Society

The Antennae series is intended to pinpoint certain phenomena or new lines of thought in the arts and to explore them by means of essays. Antennae brings together these thematic lines and aims to offer points of refernece for further discussion or follow up research.

This series maps the interaction between changes in society and cultural practices. It looks upon the arts as ‘antennae’, feelers for the cultural interpretation and articulation of topical political, economic, social, technological or environmental issues. It is a peer-reviewed book series that validates artistic, critical, speculative and essayistic writing as an academic publishing method.
