5.0 out of 5 stars Social Works, 8 Oct 2013
This review is from: Social Works: Performing Art, Supporting Publics (Paperback)
"Social Works offers a refreshing and rigorous take on performance practice, at a time when much critical theory has established oppositional relationships between the social and the aesthetic, the effective and the affective."
-- Poppy Spowage, People's Palace Projects
Platform, Vol. 6, No. 1, Spectatorship and Participation, Winter 2011

5.0 out of 5 stars Filling the gaps of interdiciplinarity, 4 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Social Works: Performing Art, Supporting Publics (Paperback)
Recently finished a thesis about the "participatory artists situations", their negotiations of aesthetics, politics and the social in a way that is very hard to disintegrate from each other, I had more questions in mind than answers. Jackson's book respond to static road maps provided by art historical accounts and bring dynamism to a field whose interdisciplinarity became a pseudo-dialogue between rigid genres. Jackson in this book, with her critical approach to available literature, brilliantly gives flesh to the shifting sensibilities and use of (the) medium(s). An informing, thought-provoking, schema-challenging, very well performed book!
Not: The writing style of Jackson might be a challenge for non-native speakers, yet with enough effort invested, her text becomes a philosophical journey as much as a art-historical, social, political.
