Abstract (English)

This publication documents selected “site-determined” projects commissioned by LOCUS + (an arts organization based in England). It includes theoretical essays on selected artists’ works by Stallabrass (on theme of site), Ratnam (on theme of identity) and Broekman (on theme of technology), as well as reviews by seven authors. A wide range of subjects are discussed – space, time, site-specificity, monumentality, memory, self-fashioning, nuclear technology, realism, virtual reality, capitalism and globalization – in relation to artworks by P. Saint George, P. Naldi, W. Kirkup, L.P. Yuxweluptun, M. Wallinger, S. Cullen, S. Gec and C. Hesse-Honegger. Includes brief descriptions of 39 projects initiated by LOCUS + between 1993-2000. Brief biographical notes on authors. Circa 120 bibl. ref.
