Øystein Aasan, Dorothee Albrecht, Can Altay,
Kader Attia, Monica Ross & Gabriela Vainsencher

Edward W. Said held a series of lectures for the BBC radio in 1992 entitled "Representations of the intellectual" in which he clearly stated the role of the intellectual in todays society – as a sort of outsider with a burning passion to what she is intereted in. D21 have invited six artists to interpret this series of lectures and come up with their answers to them.
