At the intersection of art and science exactitude and chance meet.
– Aurea Klarskov

While exactitude is considered an epistemic virtue, pedantry occasionally turns out to be an epistemic vice.
– Markus Krajewski

What is the role of exactitude in artistic practices and the processes of knowledge formation? The aim of our Basel and Zurich based interdisciplinary research group „Media of Exactitude“ was to analyze practices of knowledge production in the social sciences, the arts, and the humanities. Based on our experience, we invite to reflect diverse practices and changing notions of “exactitude” at the intersection of the arts and sciences. We want to encourage artists to engage in a discussion of their work and the practices of exactitude it involves.
