Social Intersections 00

Social Intersections is a new subject running this session exploring notions of art as social practice. Practical creative work is informed by an examination of contemporary relational aesthetic practice and a broad survey of various traditions informing contemporary efforts to re-examine and re-vitalise the relationship between art and everyday life. In preparation for the latter, I have been doing my best to acquaint myself with the standard canon of sociological, cultural-ethnographic, philosophical, literary and art-theoretical readings that reflect on art and everyday life. My aim here in this series of posts is to sketch a rough overview of the field, mapping out key readings, arguments, issues and themes. There will be many blank patches, smudges and distortions, as well as overly thick and whispy thin lines.
