Tekst achterflap

How can art weave meaningful connections between different people, their surroundings, and social systems? What does art mean in a specific community? How can art contribute to the advancement of civil society? Intricate questions that are being addressed in Forces of Art. This book looks at how artists, artworks and cultural organizations affect people and their social environments, and explores how cases of creative practice have been operational in empowering people, communities, and societies in majority world countries. Case studies from all over the world, from Central Asia to Mesoamerica and Latin America, from Africa to Central Europe, from South and Southeast Asia to the Middle East, show how art can have an effect. The myriad voices challenge the reader to think beyond art as representation, as merely aesthetical, or as simply an object or commodity. Instead, it stirs thinking of art in terms of a force that has the ability to transform. Editors Carin Kuoni Jordi Baltà Portoles Nora N.
