Where does our current obsession for interactivity stem from? After the consumer society and the communication era, does art still contribute to the emergence of a rational society? Bourriaud attempts to renew our approach toward contemporary art by getting as close as possible to the artists works, and by revealing the principles that structure their thoughts: an aesthetic of the inter-human, of the encounter; of proximity, of resisting social formatting.
Kaprow’s sustained inquiry into the paradoxical relationship of art to life and into the nature of meaning itself is brought into focus in this newly expanded collection of his most significant writings.
Where can Art go from here and who will be the next modern master? To help answer this question we are taken on an enlightening and entertaining journey through the story of modern cubism to now.

Rodenbeck offers a rigorous art historical reading of Kaprow’s project and related artworks. She finds that these experiential and experimental works offered not a happy communalism but a strong and canny critique of contemporary sociality. Happenings, she argues, were far more ambivalent, negative, and even creepy than they have been portrayed, either in contemporaneous accounts or in more recent efforts to connect them to contemporary art’s participatory strategies.
Presents photographically based artworks – portraits, self-portraits, and photomontages in which the gender of the subjects is highlighted through performance for the camera as well as through technical manipulation of the image.
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.
