Detroit Research is a new journal of practice and artist research for Detroit exploring social practice, ceramics, choreography, music, performance, and critical theory. Detroit Research seeks to be a forum for presenting and reflecting upon some of the most challenging post-studio and studio practices emerging in Detroit and to cultivate a critical language for talking about such practices within a national and international framework. Each issue of the journal will have a guest editor and a featured artist as well as work devoted to artist research, and each issue will contain a reflection upon a historically important Detroit journal. Detroit Research will appear in Spring and Fall of each year.
Volume Two is guest edited by Biba Bell, PhD on dance in/outside Detroit.
Featured artist is ceramists Marie T. Hermann.
