Item description for Who If Not We...? by Etienne Balibar, Robert Fleck, Boris Groys, Igor Zabel, Ole Bouman, Yael Bartana & Francis Alys...
Who if not we . . . ? consists of seven exhibitions (episodes) and a number of additional projects throughout Europe organized by Thinking Forward--a cultural program formed on the occasion of the Dutch presidency of the European Union. The main motivation of this visual art program is to discuss how art can participate in current social and political change. In the words of Maria Hlavajova: "The question 'Who if not we . . . ?' points to our primary motivation: to interpret this political assignment as an opportunity to modestly appeal to 'we'--European artists, thinkers, and others--to take an active part in creating a new reality through artistic and knowledge production. If not we, then others will, and we run the risk that such a future would not necessarily be shaped around our own hopes and dreams." This publication presents comprehensive insight into all parts of the program, and includes new texts by Ole Bouman, Boris Groys, Igor Zabel, and others. Edited by Maria Hlavajova and Jill Winder.
