The gestures of participatory art

First Edition

Sruti Bala

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Brings together heretofore largely segregated realms of participatory visual arts, applied theatre and performance and immersive performance art
  • Expands current debates on participatory art by including artistic practices from the Global South
  • Offers a refreshing theorisation of participatory art through the concept of the gesture
  • Rethinks the political in participatory performance in terms other than its impossible-to-measure impact or its aesthetics
