ACTIVATING DEMOCRACY: THE "I WISH TO SAY" PROJECT. Ed. by Sheryl Oring. Intellect, Bristol, 2016. Published in the U.S.A. by Intellect, University of Chicago Press. 240 pp. with 147 ills. (145 col.). 22 x 22 cm. ISBN 9781783206711 In English.
Publisher's description: Driven by a powerful belief in the value of free expression, Sheryl Oring has for more than a decade been helping American people across the country voice concerns about public affairs through her "I Wish to Say" project. This book uses that project as the starting point for an exploration of a series of issues of public interest being addressed by artists today. It features essays by contributors ranging from art historians and practicing artists to scholars and creators working in literature, political science, and architecture. All the contributors offer a different approach, but they share a primary goal of sparking a dialogue not just among makers of art, but among viewers, readers, and the concerned public at large. The resulting volume will be an essential resource for politically engaged contemporary artists searching for innovative, cross-disciplinary ways of making and sharing art.
