Clare Johnson
Associate Professor in Art & Design


This Editorial charts the journey from an initial conversation amongst Visual Culture colleagues at the University of the West of England to this special issue on Ways of Writing in Art and Design. It describes our intention to imagine forms of writing in/through/ alongside/with creative practice, as opposed to writing ‘about’ it, in the context of Visual Culture pedagogy. This is the desire to treat the artwork or other type of creative practice as a fellow subject, not an object to be written about. The Editorial explains the process through which we came together as a research network, describes a series of workshops that enabled our thinking, and situates the project within the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. Finally, it introduces each of the contributions in this collaborative constellation of articles, polemic, reflection, visual essay and illustration.
