Artificial Hells: Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship

Notes

Artificial Hells is the first historical and theoretical overview of socially engaged participatory art, known in the US as ‘social practice’. Claire Bishop follows the trajectory of twentieth-century art and examines key moments in the development of a participatory aesthetic. The itinerary takes in Futurism and Dada; the Situationist International; Happenings in Eastern Europe, Argentina and Paris; the 1970s Community Arts Movement; and the Artists Placement Group.
