For the seminar on “Participation and Theory” we have selected 8 articles/book chapters from English, German and French authors to get an European vision on participatory art. The book “Living as Form. Socially Engaged Art from 1991-2011” and the articles by Rebentisch and Wischhoff provide you with an overview of the subject. The main focus in our workshop will be on the articles/book chapters of Nicolas Bourriaud, Anna Dezeuse, Claire Bishop, Erika-Fischer Lichte and Jacques Rancière.
Our discussions are structured around some central aspects of their approaches, for which we kindly ask you to prepare a set of questions. The timetable is supposed to help you prepare your readings.
