Dreams for an Institution: a Study Room Guide

Artist/Author: Johanna Linsley | Reference: P2313

A Study Room Guide in response to a Study Room Gathering about the state of the institution and its alternatives for (and as) Live Art.

What kind of stance can a radical politics take towards institutions in these times? This Guide looks at artists’ projects that engage with institutions, both critically and creatively, and considers how performance practice has engaged and challenged institutions in recent years.
