Looking at the work of Tanja Ostojic (Serbia) and Andrea Fraser (USA), the article recognises a turn to biopolitical production in the work of contemporary women artists since 2000. The argument investigates practices where the artwork is executed in the field of actual social relations, remaining (in some cases) invisible to the traditional art audience until a document of this 'art as life' is produced and forced into circulation. The article considers the ethical and political contextualisation of such work - in which the production and circulation of art documentation plays a most important role.
