Moving Out Symposium Live Blog 11: Feedback

Politics and Artists

Last week, at In Cahoots, someone defined 'community art' in a cynical manner: it involves an artist cutting about with a bunch of people, getting them involved, then putting his or her name on the end product. Like when I get all people to write for The List, then tell everyone that I define the theatre section's identity.

So, that's the question of authorship considered.

Sometimes it's the metaphor rather than the physical manifestation that's more powerful. Boyden encapsulates the success of Bölter's work

How does an artist deal with institutional systems?
