Social Sculptures and Cultural Translations

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


I want to focus on the capability of contemporary art to question fixed categories of political discourse, and also in Art itself. In this context, I would like to forward some notes about the concept of "social sculpture" or temporary public art. These notes were, in turn, intended as a response to a speech by the British cultural theorist Sarat Maharaj at the AICA conference in London one year ago.
