Mobilising Participation in Sound Machine by Esther Shalev-Gerz
2011 (English)In: The Art of Engagement: Culture, Collaboration, Innovation / [ed] Elaine Lally, Ien Ang & Kay Anderson, Crawley, Western Australia: UWA Publishing , 2011, 183-198 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
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.
