Art as Intervention essay

Art as Intervention:  A Guide to Today’s Radical Art Practices
A chapter in the collection Uses of a Whirlwind: Movement, Movements, and Contemporary Radical Currents in the United States edited by Team Colors Collective, AK Press, June 2010

My chapter looks at the various approaches artists have to the problem of how to make art that promotes social change.  The chapter includes interviews with Mike Bonanno of the Yes Men, Steve Kurtz of Critical Art Ensemble, Paige Sarlin of 16 Beaver Group, Rosten Woo, former Executive Director of the Center for Urban Pedagogy, Natalie Jeremijenko, and Dara Greenwald.  This book was released at the United States Social Forum in Detroit in June 2010 and I have since spoken about the book at a variety of locations with other Whirlwinds contributors and editors.
