A new book with a collection of peer-reviewed essays on the documentation of socially engaged art has been published by the International Society for Education through Art (InSEA).
Edited by Prof. Raphael Vella (Faculty of Education, University of Malta) and Dr Melanie Sarantou (University of Lapland), this beautifully designed book brings together research from various countries, including Malta, and is available as an open access publication.
Documents of Socially Engaged Art is a timely and significant contribution to the debate on social practice in contemporary artistic practices. This collection is divided into three sections of essays which study the different modes of documentation that are employed in collaborative artistic or design processes, including multiple approaches that reflect artists’, participants’, researchers’ and educators’ viewpoints.
The publication was made possible by a Research Seed Fund awarded by the University of Malta and funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 870621.
