Helena Almeida's Colourful cannibalism: consuming Yves Klein Blue

"For Study for Inner Improvement (1977), a sequence of photographs in which Almeida looks like she is eating blue paint. There is no question that the colour she is consuming is very similar to that of Yves Klein. She had in the past protested at Klein's use of women as objects in his artworks. At the time of making Study for Inner Improvement, the concept of anthropophagy (cultural cannibalism, the idea of consuming other cultures as a way of asserting independence) was a popular ideology. Almeida's chewing up of Klein's blue, a colour he had come to dominate, was a liberating act for women and artists everywhere."

Show or tell? Opportunities, problems and methods of the exhibition as a form of research dissemination

"The European Academy of Design took a pioneering step in their 1999 biennial conference by including an exhibition of 'practice–based research'. This was refereed in the same way as conventional papers and a number of interesting exhibits were produced, demonstrating a diversity of work and connections between the methods and aims of the exhibitors and those of conventionally published research. In fact the conference award for 'best paper' (on a vote by all delegates) went to one of the exhibitors. Unfortunately the EAD exhibition did not result in a permanent record of the research thus 'published' so the exhibits did not contribute to the recorded body of knowledge and provided no exemplars for future researchers.

A further problem with the EAD exhibition, held in England, was that all the exhibits originated in the UK. Given the difficulty of transporting exhibition materials over long distances, it was reasonable to assume that the format inhibited international contributions and this was reinforced at the 2001 EAD conference in Portugal where exhibits were invited but only one was forthcoming (a graphic design exhibit from Australia) possibly because the ideas of practice–based research were less prevalent in the host country.

Against this background, the Design Research Society decided to include an exhibition in their 2002 Conference, 'Common Ground', held at Brunel University in England. This was an experimental activity and there was uncertainty about whether suitable research exhibits would be forthcoming, how to referee them and how to provide a permanent record. However it was felt that this experiment needed to go further than the preceding EAD venture and make a permanent contribution to our understanding of this form of dissemination. "
