In 2007, artist Mike Nelson transformed the disused interior of the Essex Street Market on New York's Lower East Side, taking audiences on a journey through his installation “A Psychic Vacuum,” a series of reconstructed rooms and passageways filled with enigmatic props, clues and assemblies.

Solid collection on the topic of socially engaged art (participatory art, relational aesthetics, social practice, etc.). The introductory essays alone are worth picking it up.

At times the survey portions felt a little superficial, yet it does give a rich glimpse of the range of this kind of work. Not a perfect book, but definitely worth reading if at all interested in the intersection of art and social action. Also- sexy design. I'm a sucker for a nice-looking/feeling book.… (més)
