The ‘do-it-yourself’ artwork: Participation from Fluxus to new mediaThis volume consists of fifteen essays by art historians, critics and curators, which are divided into three sections. Part 1 addresses the emergence of spectator participation in the 1960s, whilst Part 2 brings together in-depth case studies of specific participatory practices in the 1960s, 1970s and 1990s, analysing the issues that they raise in their very modes of operation.
