In conjunction with The Art of Participation, this selection of video shorts presents a range of documented interventions by contemporary artists and activists. From subtle gestures to provocative engagement, these often sly and humorous performances question the limits of public space and the reliability of the media. No corporate institution is safe from their critical lens. The selection includes works by Bernadette Corporation, Jeff Cain, Andrea Fraser, Aleksandra Mir, Melinda Stone and Igor Vamos, and The Yes Men.
