Is a pluralist society yet to come? Art against the Administration of Stasis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

The essay uses the case study of Olafur Eliasson's Green Light, as a concept, to reflect on the repetitiveness of socially engaged art. Where does this repetitiveness stem from? The analysis suggests an answer cannot be given from within an inward-looking art history. It elaborates a more complex argument instead by looking at how things have changed since 'an aesthetics of administration' was to enter art theory.
