In the second half of the twentieth century, the relationship between artists and audiences in the visual arts was deeply transformed. Regardless of geography, social oriented art is now a genre in itself, guided by the desire to question object, artist and audience.
Participatory art is established on successive cultural (Jameson 1998), education (O’Neill & Wilson 2010) and social turns (Bishop 2006), as attempts to rethink the political potential of art, reviewing creation, mediation and consumption. However, neither it is a linear formula of political art, nor does it recognizes itself in so many other aspects of the new spirit of capitalism – network, mobility, enterprise or manipulation (Boltanski & Chiapello 2005).
Therefore with this global ethnography (Burawoy 2000), under design, we intend to study participatory art as a creation social space and social and artistic contemporary mediation, recognizing actors, extensions of this expression, and mapping its presence in the global art circuit. We long to observe this creative process and interview the participants in order to understand the relationship between (i) audience participation, (ii) artists and participants life paths’ (iii) and its artistic and political engagement. It is intended, thus, to create a theoretical and empirical apparatus that combines participative production between artistic, scientific and social fields.
Considering both the embryonic stage of this research project and the critical continuities and discontinuities that are present in theoretical work on participatory art, we intend to discuss experiences of miscegenation between art and education, discussing some of the multiple stresses which are summoned: the call for active cultural citizenship, political and civic education, critical attitude towards the scholarly of most cynical contemporary languages , aesthetics and ethics experiments or even the requirement for status of art reformulation, the incorporation of social engineering strategies, commodification of bodies, domination and symbolic violence.
