self-organised (makinguse#15)

Self-Organised, edited by Stine Hebert and Anne Szefer Karlsen, is the third book in the Occasional Table series. "This new anthology of accounts from the frontline includes contributions by artist practitioners as well as their institutional counterparts that provide a fascinating account of the art world as a matrix of positions where the balance of power and productivity constantly shifts. Artists, curators and critics discuss empirical and theoretical approaches from Europe, Africa and South and North America on how self-organisation today oscillates between the self and the group, self-imposed bureaucratisation and flexibility, aestheticisation and activism.”
