      1. A consideration of what Kester terms ‘dialogical art practice’ through the work of artists and collectives who have engaged with various forms of cultural activism, community engagement, and social issues by placing dialogue with various constituencies/audiences at the center of their projects. This book charts a history of such works, from the feminist performance art of the 1960s and 1970s, for example, through to today, using examples such as the work of Suzanne Lacy or the collective WochenKlauser.
