Making matters: A vocabulary for collective arts

CAD 38.00

Collective action often changes the artist’s identity and working habits: from individuality and autonomy to collectivity and collaboration, both locally and globally. This has given rise to new kinds of collective art and design practices: artists work together with nonartists, make products for their local environment and take on multiple identities, such as researcher, community activist, computer hacker or business consultant.


Making Matters looks at art practices across all continents that conform neither to a Western concept of art nor to traditional distinctions between art, design, research and activism—where the boundaries between art, design, research and activism become blurred or are dissolved.



Edited with text by Janneke Wesseling, Florian Cramer, Anja Groten, Klaas Kuitenbrouwer, Pia Louwerens, Marie-José Sondeijker.
