REYERO, Alejandra; NAVAS, Maia; IRIBARNE, Gabriel  and  BENTOLILA, Héctor. Art as research. Shadows and repetitions to test other modes of knowing and writing. Ñawi [online]. 2023, vol.7, n.1, pp.71-99. ISSN 2588-0934.

This article discusses the links between art, science and research. In theoretical-methodological terms, it conceives and practices writing as an experience of multimodal composition in the key of fictional invention. Through the activation of heuristic and poetic processes mediated by montage, it rehearses a writing proposal that seeks to tense the usual procedures of academic discourse. Displayed operations are based on repetition as a textual experimentation procedure. We consider Gertrude Stein’s postulates about “composition as explanation”, some of Gilles Deleuze’s arguments about philosophy as an art of fabulating concepts and the potentiality of repetitions to bring out differences not subordinated to the identical; and finally, certain decolonial principles that allow us to disarm the luminous grammars of the Western ocularcentric paradigm that establishes ways of knowing, looking and feeling.

Keywords : Montage; writing; essay; knowledge; experimentation.
