How to Act?

Artists' Books

Via a cross-European exchange of artworks, artists, researchers and students, Art Cooperation Transmission (A.C.T.) Democ[k]racy aims to promote contemporary art in its ability to think, invent and represent the democratic changes of Europe in an era of globalisation.

In France, Romania, Serbia and The Netherlands, nine partners organised students’ and artists’ residencies, exhibitions and seminars. They explored education, poetics, urbanism and freedom and gathered contributions by artists, philosophers, sociologists, poets, architects, urbanists, writers, art critics, historians, etc. So, they imagined a multifocal publication on art and democracy.

How to ACT? post-produces this experience: building the exhibitions, informing each other during the conferences and fostering exchange through the residencies. The result is a set of answers and an impetus to act. Critical and poetic texts, political cartoons, photography and more open up a world of possibilities for artistic and civil acts.
