Abstract (English)

Identifying four areas of crisis in democracy in the U.S.A. (education, electoral politics, cultural participation and AIDS), Group Material employs exhibitions comprised of over 160 artists' works and the collaborative processes of roundtable discussions and townmeetings to analyse these issues while deconstructing the exclusiveness of cultural practice. Includes documentation of the project and supplementary essays and interviews.
