Insiders
Library Shelf Location 06.ARCH
Publication Date 2010
Description Focusing on the theme of “the private and the collective”, Insiders brings together over eighty architects and collectives from a variety of backgrounds who have in common ways of overstepping the frontiers of their respective disciplines. Like the early folklorists, contemporary artists have explored ways of collecting a variety of cultural materials, while architects offer alternative approaches relating to new ways of appropriating the city and architecture itself. The selected works on show raise essential questions about the way both art and architecture relate to popular culture. Insiders responds to current world social and economic issues and models of global culture by exploring new and singular dynamics of exchange and organization that bear the potential for new collective values. Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition produced by architecture centre Arc en rêve and contemporary art museum CAPC in Bordeaux, as part of the first edition of Evento, the Bordeaux cultural and urban biennale, from October 2009 to February 2010. Works and contributions by Cory Arcangel, Jean-Marc Chapoulie, Jeremy Deller, Jimmie Durham, Ruth Ewan, Fischli & Weiss, Jim Shaw, Pierre Joseph, Mike Kelley, Mathieu Mercier, Adelfo Scaranello, Oscar Tuazon, Andrea Zittel, Raphaël Zarka.
