Public Enquiries PARKLEK and the Scandinavian Social Turn
Tryckt bok, I lager
Public Enquiries: PARK LEK and the Scandinavian Social Turn demonstrates how artistic practice can change, inform and shape public policy towards urban landscapes.
Public Enquiries maps how PARK LEK—a utopian art project proposed in Stockholm by the artist Kerstin Bergendal—intervened in and transformed the local government planning processes used to shape segregated urban areas. It also examines the role of the artist in the context of public space, design constructs and social platforms, ultimately suggesting that PARK LEK can be seen as a blueprint for the agency of artistic practice in reconstructing local democracy worldwide.
