Research Interests

Vid’s research focus is the idea of art as an intellectual discipline, which he investigates from historical and philosophical perspectives. His current monograph project, 'Artist as a Thinker: From Conceptual Art to Art as Research', investigates this idea in relation to post-1960 art movements such as conceptual, computer and laboratory-based art. In addition he has wide-ranging interests across philosophy and history of art, having presented or published on topics including neuro-aesthetics, Virginia Woolf’s essays and Schopenhauer’s aesthetic theory. Vid also often collaborates with artists on research-based exhibitions, and writes on art and literature for various British and Slovene publications.
