|Iris Ferrer; reinaart vanhoe; Emily Shin-Jie Lee e.a.
Two volumes combined in a single publication. The first examines art which is primarily active in the context of daily processes. By shifting our attention away from artistic practices based on object production and individual successes, what can other kinds of practices bring about? Artists and cultural practitioners mostly from South/East Asia connect and share their insight and experience through lively conversations and co-creation in digital workshops. Through anthropological fieldwork and critical analysis, the second volume looks at different forms of socially engaged artistic practices in China that address social issues while avoiding explicitly opposing political authorities.
