Changing States

Changing States: Contemporary Art and Ideas in an Era of Globalisation
Edited by Gilane Tawadros


Featuring the work of over 100 artists and writers, this unique anthology maps the changing landscape of contemporary art and culture over the past decade in the context of global economics and local politics. Seen through the prism of a decade of artistic programming by Iniva, the book examines the most pressing issues that have driven international contemporary art at the turn of the millennium. The presentation of compelling issues in an accessible and visual way makes this book essential reading for academics and art enthusiasts alike. Thematic chapters on key concepts - such as modernity, nation, site, technology, the postcolonial city, performance, the archive and sport - combine new writing with artists' pages, reprints of much sought-after texts, unpublished transcripts of discussions and interviews featuring leading international scholars. The inclusion of a glossary and a timeline plotting some of the decade's greatest artistic achievements makes this an important book for anyone interested in international contemporary art. Celebrating ten years of Iniva projects, the anthology provides a compendium of groundbreaking artworks, debates and ideas that have been at the cutting edge of wider social, economic and political transformations.
