Interdisciplinary Anticipations: Art-Science Collaboration at the Maastricht Brain Stimulation and Cognition Laboratory
This chapter examines interdisciplinary aspirations of art-science collaborations using an art-science project at the Maastricht Brain Stimulation and Cognition research group as a case study. Studying the epistemic living spaces of this fifteen-month project from a science and technology studies (STS) perspective, I point to the pervasive presence of anticipation and confusion as typical affects in interdisciplinary work. Art-science projects allow for momentary inversions of hierarchies and a-synchronicities in the aims and effects of collaboration. The tacit structures I describe in this chapter demonstrate the implications of (ideals of) interdisciplinarity in particular situations, capturing some of the social, epistemic, and symbolic operations of the slippery term “interdisciplinarity” in action.
