Situation Aesthetics - The work of Michael Asher PT2

Continued extracts from book to support research. . .

"Museum conduct" how one should behave and conduct themselves within the context of viewing works of art. - How I could create a book of gallery conduct based upon the actions I have carried out throughout active research?

Participatory approaches to art [referenced Claire Bishop] "the collective dimension of social experience" That is what my evolved structures would create. The works of Asher requires participants to acquire personal accountability within the artists designed framework.

The reconfiguration of the museums professional role capable of changing and transforming singular systems into internally conflicting domains. This allows for distinct forms of spectatorial agency.

Definition: Participatory art is an approach to making art in which the audience is engaged directly in the creative process, allowing them to become co-authors, editors, and observers of the work. Therefore,this type of art is incomplete without the viewers physical interaction.

 1970's "Participatory Art" [artists]: Vito Acconci, Bruce Nauman, Dan Graham, Hans Haacke
