To reflect on the current state of so-called ‘immaterial practices’, Galerie (an immaterial art gallery) proposes to start with remembering a book––Claire Bishop’s Artificial Hells. Back in 2012, this essay proposed a historical and theoretical critique of ‘participatory art’, also known as “social practice”, by challenging the emancipatory claims proposed by these projects.

 

Over 11 episodes, each corresponding to a chapter, Galerie will read aloud Claire Bishop’s Artificial Hells (with the kind agreement of the author). So, lean back out there in the summer country. Every week we will share a new chapter, and whether you are at the seaside, in the mountains or working for the money to keep up with the inflation––we’ve got you covered with last year’s critique.
