ARTIFICIAL HELLS Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship by Claire Bishop rtificial Hells is the first historical and theoretical overview of socially engaged participatory art, also known as “social practice.” Bishop follows the trajectory of twentieth-century art and examines key moments in the development of a participatory aesthetic. The book concludes with a discussion of long-term educational projects by such contemporary artists as Thomas Hirschhorn, Tania Bruguera, and Paul Chan, among others. Artificial Hells calls for a less prescriptive approach to art and politics, and for more compelling and bolder forms of participatory art and criticism.

JACOB HASHIMOTO Superabundant Atmospheres Edited by Luca Massimo Barbero acob Hashimoto is probably best known for his installations. He simulates nature without pretending to replicate it, and redefines Japanese screen painting with his assemblages of paper kites in undulating, interactive compositions. His works convey an ephemeral wonder, enthralling the viewer with their continuously shifting illusion of light, space, motion, and sense of flight. Hashimoto’s crafting by hand is central in his works, and the resulting pieces embody the rhythm of repetitive execution given by the tying and knotting involved in their making. While examining Hashimoto’s kite creations, this book also references the ‘meta-history’ of contemporary art.

THE ART-ARCHITECTURE COMPLEX by Hal Foster al Foster, author of the acclaimed Design and Crime, argues that a fusion of architecture and art is a defining feature of contemporary culture. He identifies a “global style” of architecture analogous to the international style of famed architects Le Corbusier, Gropius, and Mies. More than any other art, today’s global style conveys both the dreams and the delusions of modernity. Foster demonstrates that a study of the “art-architecture” complex provides invaluable insight into broader social and economic trajectories in urgent need of analysis.
