Artist-run Democracy: Sustaining a Model
|Author||Jim Ricks ed.|
This publication zooms in on a particular mode of organizing: on the ‘Artist-run Democracy’. It does so by examining the workings of 126, an Artist-run gallery in Galway, Ireland, as a benchmark. 126 is particular in the way the board is conceived, how the program is decided upon, how directors change every two year, 'serving as volunteers', and more. This book explores the grounds for this mode of organizing within the self-organized culture of the art sector, and may serve as inspiration and discussion for those committed to organising in the visual arts and beyond.
