In recent years, the idea of art as an act of research has gained increasing currency, greatly enlarging the parameters of art itself. "Intellectual Birdhouse" gathers a broad range of interpretations of this paradigm shift through writings by authors from a range of disciplines. Tom Holert offers "Scattered Thoughts on 'Artistic Research' and 'Social Responsibility'"; Hito Steyerl assesses research as an "Aesthetic of Resistance"; Hannes Rickli discusses art and biology; Michael Schwab interviews Henk Borgdorff; Sabine Flach looks at Kandinsky's merging of art and science; Penelope Haralambidou writes on "Allegory, Architecture and Figural Theory"; Florian Hecker and Sonia Matos discuss psychoactive acoustic experiences; and Renee Green writes on "Paradoxes Experienced by Artist-Thinkers." Other contributors include Jan Svenungsson, Henk Slager, Sarat Maharaj and Francisco Varela, Hans-Jorg Rheinberger, Raqs Media Collective, Marcus Steinweg, Bracha L. Ettinger, Jonathan Miles, Paul Carter, Gina Badger and Alise more
