Living As Form: Socially Engaged Art From 1991 - 2011
Editorial Preview - Off the Press
Edited by Nato Thompson, Living as Form consists of more than 100 projects selected by a thirty-person curatorial advisory team. Concerned with the political implications of socially engaged art, artists explore how their work addresses issues that affect our world. Some artists featured in the book are the Danish collective Superflex, Jeremy Deller, Women of Waves, and Santiago Cirugeda. This awe-inspiring examination of how art can be a vehicle for social change strives to impact the lives of people all over the world, for “socially engaged art is not an art movement. Rather, these cultural practices indicate a new social order—ways of life that emphasize participation, challenge power, and span disciplines ranging from urban planning and community work to theater and the visual arts.”
