Art In Context - edited by Herman Bashiron Mendolicchio and Susanne Bosch
This publication introduces 21 passionate statements from practitioners in the field of participatory art from Myanmar, Japan, Germany, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong and China. Their contributions help to define a complex practice, that takes many forms and is called by many names, but is united by a spirit of giving, receiving and reciprocating in art-making.
Mirroring the essence of the exchange within this practice, the structure of this publication is based on dialogue. The idea of peer-to-peer conversations was kindled during our initial encounters in the field, the understanding we gained about each other’s practices and the desire to eventually learn more from each other.
The diversity and messiness of the fieldwork is part of the field, and here, that experience is expressed in the original voices of the practitioners.
