Abstract [en]

The Art of Engagement explores the dynamics of arts-business-community collaborations, including their aesthetic, social and political dimensions. The chapter by Swedish writers Axelsson and 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 possibility of participant research into the work of 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.
