Where Art and Theory Meet: A Comparative Perspective

Alternative initiatives and activities in the field of art concentrate at certain social moments, resulting in a stronger presence and effect. Today, alternative activities and programs (compared with “the alternative scene” of the 1980s) can be parallel to national institutions or thoughtfully and consistently functioning within a framework of public and non-governmental organizations, while maintaining a level of independence and autonomy. The author describes a selection of basic structural characteristics, such as the connection of various protagonists and disciplines into a wider model, the “expanded field of art”, or the interweaving of artistic practices, new technologies and discursive practices that take place at the intersection of art, theory and politics. On this foundation, she attempts to map a network of autonomous collectives, which establish their own organizational structure, a circle of associates, their own media and an autonomous space that becomes the hub for integration, collaboration and experimentation.
