Anthropology and Art

Arnd Schneiders chapter in The SAGE handbook of Social Anthropology is divided into five main headings: (1) agency and relationality; (2)artworlds;(3) mimesis and appropriation; (4)materiality; phenomenology, skills and creativity; and (6) practice.

Rather than thinking of two clearly separated fields, one being the ivestigating subject (anthropology), the other being the passive object of research (art), the two disciplines are endeavours of knowledge production, onvolved in setting expermimnetal research agendas which can enter into fruitful dialogue
