Artistic practices have long been disturbing the relationships between art and space. They have challenged the boundaries of performer/spectator, of public/private, introduced intervention and installation, ephemerality and performance, and constantly sought out new modes of distressing expectations about what is construed as art. But when we expand the world in which we look at art, how does this change our understanding of critical artistic practice?
This book launch will feature contributors of the book Art and the City: Worlding the Discussion through a Critical Artscape, introducing work from Beirut, London and Geneva, with an introduction by editor Julie Ren and discussant commentary by Martin Zebracki.
