Abstract (English)

Curator Harding analyses how the working processes and strategies used by the four installation artists reveal a "commitment to re-evaluating the way we view the world". Quoting Benjamin, Berger, Spivak and Simmel, Papastergiadis examines the concepts of Alienation, Margin, Stranger and Avant Garde which are central to the critique of modernity and the emergence of an alternative history. Short essay and biographical notes on each artist. 31 bibl. ref.
