      1. A reader with texts speculating upon the function of artistic practice and political intervention in light of today’s increasingly fragmented and corporatized public sphere. Contributions consider the positioning of specific ‘publics’ and the political implications of such positioning, the potential role of art and art institutions to create a new public sphere, and participatory models of spectatorship, among other issues. See in particular texts by FW researcher Marion von Osten, FW curator Charles Esche, Miwon Kwon, and Stephan Dillemuth.
