With austerity measures pitting cultural producers against each other in 
a competition for survival, collectivity and resistance may seem like 
obsolete notions. All the while, the rising popularity of artistic 
research and interdisciplinary approaches between the arts and sciences 
brings with it an increase in institutional and financial backing. 
However, what this recent hype does not transport is the knowledge of a 
long history of interrelations between art and knowledge production in 
the seize and capture of its spaces of autonomy or strategies of 
collective struggles.

This issue of transversal sets out to map the diverse formulations of 
overlaps and the various neighboring zones between art and knowledge 
production and how they have opened a complex range of potential for 
intervention into the social and the political. Its contributions 
analyze concrete artistic practices, follow the historical traces of an 
"aesthetics of resistance" and open a critical geopolitical perspective 
on creativity, the arts and knowledge in the crises of contemporary 
capitalism.
