CURATED LIBRARIES

A Relational Aesthetics Bookshelf

A Relational Aesthetics Bookshelf

In 1996, French theorist and curator Nicolas Bourriaud put together a show called Traffic, in which he advanced a new kind of art that he named “Relational Aesthetics.” The artists Bourriaud convened under this rubric--among them Liam Gillick, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe, Carsten Höller and Vanessa Beecroft--all envisage their audience as potential collaborators and a potential community, so that the work’s meaning is generated collectively rather than individually (as with a traditional observer/artwork encounter). Bourriaud himself describes Relational Aesthetics as “a set of artistic practices which take as their theoretical and practical point of departure the whole of human relations and their social context, rather than an independent and private space.” Rirkrit Tiravanija’s 1990s installations, in which meals were cooked for visitors, provide a classic instance of Relational Aesthetics in action; Vanessa Beecroft’s use of models and audience involvement are another. Our Artbook Curated Library is a selection of the finest monographs available on these artists.

Relational Aesthetics: Recommended Reading List

NEW PUBLICATION

Pope.L: Campaign

Edited by Dieter Roelstraete. Text by Zachary Cahill, Klea Charitou, Iris Colburn, Tianyu Guo, Jeffrey Hsu, Leon Hösl, Vidura Jang Bahadur, Michal Koszycki, Chichan Kwong, Cristen Leifheit, Jasmin Liang, Brock Lownes, Elizabeth McClafferty, Adrienne Meyers, Pope.L, Monika Szewczyk, Marie-Gabrielle Verbergt.

This book is a three-part report on a collaboration between artist Pope.L (born 1955) and curator Dieter Roelstraete exploring issues of connectedness, home, migration and art's relationship to knowledge.

It began in the spring of 2016 with an invitation, extended to the artist by Roelstraete, Monika Szewczyk and Adam Szymczyk, to participate in the 14th edition of Documenta. Pope.L's contribution was the immersive sound installation Whispering Campaign, consisting of thousands of hours of whispered content addressing nationhood and borders, and broadcast throughout Athens and Kassel using both speakers and live whisperers.

A month later, a second chapter of the campaign was inaugurated at the University of Chicago's Logan Center for the Arts, revolving around the Brown People Are the Wrens in the Parking Lot project. In this volume, Zachary Cahill looks back upon this complex enterprise, which involved an art exhibit, a DIY media campaign, a thematic library, video interviews and a series of events ranging from impromptu performances and DJ sets to a program of presentations and debates.

The third and final chapter of the artist's campaign unfolded as a course cotaught at the University of Chicago by Pope.L and Roelstraete, titled Art and Knowledge, which sought to address one of Whispering Campaign's catchiest and most puzzling slogans—namely, ignorance is a virtue.\ Students were invited to contribute their . . . .go to book page >>
