D. Graham Burnett

D. Graham Burnett works at the intersection of historical inquiry and artistic practice. He is interested in experimental/experiential approaches to textual material, pedagogical modes, and hermeneutic activities traditionally associated with the research humanities. Recent (collaborative) performances and exhibitions include: "The Work of Art Under Conditions of Intermittent Accessibility" (Palais de Tokyo, Paris); "The Rülek Scrolls and the Practice of the Door" (MoMA PS1, NYC); "The Pomagello Document" (Dairy Arts Centre, London), and "The Tivoli Park School" (2015 Ljubljana Biennial). Burnett trained in History and Philosophy of Science at Cambridge University, and teaches at Princeton. He is an editor at the Brooklyn-based Cabinet magazine; the author of a number of books, including Descartes and the Hyperbolic Quest (2005), Trying Leviathan (2007), and The Sounding of the Whale (2012); and a member of the research collective ESTAR(SER).
