Glass Bead is an art journal and an international research platform concerned with transferals of knowledge across art, science and philosophy, as well as their practical and political dimensions, undertaking a year of inquiry in the form of an audio research program and a series of public events. Launched in New York in April 2014, this inquiry is pursued this autumn in Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers. The journal and platform will be launched in 2015. Glass Bead is developed and run by Fabien Giraud, Jeremy Lecomte, Vincent Normand, Ida Soulard and Inigo Wilkins, and was initiated in 2012 by Fabien Giraud and Ida Soulard.
