Research interests

Research interests and expertise

In what ways can contemporary art engage with the forms, attitudes, approaches, language and values of the prevailing neo-liberal ideologies? Andy's research aims to speculate upon and inhabit this question which acts as a provocation, a call to generate platforms for facilitating and re-imagining alternative kinds of knowing.
