Mobilising participation in the work of art: Sound Machine by Esther Shalev-Gerz
2011 (English)In: The Art of Engagement: Culture, collaboration, innovation / [ed] Elaine Lally, Ien Ang, Kay Anderson, Sydney: UWA Publishing , 2011, 181-196 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
The chapter by Swedish writers Bodil Axelsson and Karin Becker analyses Sound Machine, a collaborative contemporary art project that was developed integrally with university activities in research and teaching. This interface opened up the rare possibility of participant research into the work processes of a well-known European collaborative artist, Esther Shalev-Gerz. The researchers trace different modes of engagement with participating non-artist subjects - such as the women who provide 'cultural memory' of earlier forms of work and engagement with technology - as well as other forms of participation essential for Sound Machine's conceptual, technical and institutional development.
