Unfinished Systems of Non-Knowledge is a longer-term research project developed by curator, writer and researcher Christel Vesters, which investigates and tests the potential of art as an alternative knowledge system. The project explores the possibility of alternative knowledge systems – in the visual arts, literature and the sciences – that are notable for their subversive agency in terms of dominant ideas on knowledge and models of knowing.
