Time to Play: Action and Interaction in Contemporary Art

Voorkant
I.B.Tauris, 9 dec. 2014 - 224 pagina's
‘Play art’ or interactive art is becoming a central concept in the contemporary art world, disrupting the traditional role of passive observance usually assumed by audiences, allowing them active participation. The work of ‘play’ artists - from Carsten Höller’s ‘Test Site’ at the Tate Modern to Gabriel Orozco’s ‘Ping Pond Table’ - must be touched, influenced and experienced; the gallery-goer is no longer a spectator but a co-creator. Time to Play explores the role of play as a central but neglected concept in aesthetics and a model for ground-breaking modern and postmodern experiments which have tended to blur the boundary between art and life. Moving freely between disciplines, Katarzyna Zimna links the theory and history of 20th and 21st century art with ideas developed within play, game and leisure studies, and the philosophical theories of Kant, Gadamer and Derrida, to critically engage with current discussion on the role of the artist, viewers, curators and their spaces of encounter.
