"It’s really not possible in a short review to fully demonstrate this book’s achievement. It is a complex publication and as many of the chapters serve differing purposes […] It is a clear and theoretically justified bid for such research to enjoy institutional funding and support." -- Katy Macleod, Kingston University, UK in International Journal of Education through art vol 9 no.1 2013|"Well written and well argued, this book will probably become a reference for many studies to come and required reading for anyone active in this domain."
– Frans-Willem Korsten Erasmus University Rotterdam and Leiden University, Netherlands|"This volume assembles Henk Borgdorff ’s pioneering theoretical contributions that unfold many layers of thought about artistic research and its place in academia. His early papers are in no way obsolete, and he has added up-to-date comments and reflections." – Søren Kjørup Roskilde University, Denmark and Bergen National Academy of the Arts, Norway
