Fiona McGregor, writer and performance artist, travelled to Poland in 2006 with former art/life partner AñA Wojak touring Arterial, a show based on blood rituals. Halfway between travelogue and memoir, the book documents the passage through economic, political, and personal formations in the interlaced trajectories of art and life, past and present. The artist gets caught up watching and participating in a culture in change, where people are struggling to live well enough under capitalism and where old ideas are expressed in the extraordinary cluster of public museums she found. This item is referenced in the Dreams for an Institution Guide (P2313).
