Since 2007, Antennae: The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture has been the international reference point of the non-human turn in the visual arts. This volume gathers the richest interviews and the most thought-provoking essays featured over its forty installments thus far published.
Examines themes of being-in-common in today’s world and their relation to the development of art practices. As these practices are implemented, other ways of seeing, understanding, and making appear.
Part of the Study Room Guide on Live Art and Displacement (P3107).
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. The more general critical essays in Part 3 map out a range of theoretical approaches to the ‘do-it-yourself’ artwork.
An original and inventive resource for anyone interested in contemporary performance practices and their relationships with audiences.
Study Room Guide is about participation and socially-engaged works, in which the frame proposed by the artist is open, and allows participants to make their involvement their own, taking it to a point that the artist could not have reached alone.
