Global activism: art and conflict in the 21st century

Global activism: art and conflict in the 21st century

Weibel, Peter, editor; Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe, host institution

Today, political protest often takes the form of spontaneous, non-institutional, mass action. At the same time, art is emerging as a public space in which the individual can claim the promises of constitutional and state democracy. As such, activism may be the first new art form of the 21st century. 'Global Activism' describes and documents politically inspired art and global art practices that draw attention to grievances and demand the transformation of existing conditions through actions, demonstrations and performances in public space
