Sensible Politics: The Visual Culture of Nongovernmental Activism

Editor: Meg McLagan and Yates McKee | Reference: P2800 | ISBN: 978-1935408246 | Type: Publication

A diverse group of contributors, from art historians, anthropologists, and political theorists to artists, filmmakers, and architects, considers the interaction of politics and the visual in such topics as the political consequences of a photograph taken by an Israeli soldier in a Palestinian house in Ramallah; AIDS activism; images of social suffering in Iran; the “forensic architecture” of claims to truth; and the “Make Poverty History” campaign. Transcending disciplines, they trace a broader image complex whereby politics is brought to visibility through the mediation of specific cultural forms that mix the legal and the visual, the hermeneutic and the technical, the political and the aesthetic.

Radical Prototypes: Allan Kaprow and the Invention of Happenings

Artist/Author: Judith F. Rodenbeck | Reference: P2798 | ISBN: 978-0262526128 | Type: Publication

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.
