“Participation and Spectacle: Where Are We Now?”

In this lecture as part of Creative Time‘s Living as Form exhibition, Claire Bishop argues that social practice should not involve ethics, but rather foster (often uncomfortable) critical thought.

Is there a middle ground between the two?

How do you think participatory art should be judged?

While putting together the show, the DCCA curatorial team looked to, among others, writings by Claire Bishop and exhibitions by Creative Time for inspiration. As such, the following reading materials are included in the Radical Reading Room for reference purposes: Participation (edited by Claire Bishop), Artificial Hells by Claire Bishop, Living as Form and The Interventionists (both Creative Time exhibition catalogs). Stop by to tell us your thoughts about these projects!
