Relational Aesthetics

Where does our current obsession for interactivity stem from? After the consumer society and the communication era, does art still contribute to the emergence of a rational society? Bourriaud attempts to renew our approach toward contemporary art by getting as close as possible to the artists works, and by revealing the principles that structure their thoughts: an aesthetic of the inter-human, of the encounter; of proximity, of resisting social formatting.

Text: Bourriaud Nicolas. cm 15×21; pp. 128; paperback. Publisher: Les Presses du Reél, Dijon, 2002.
