Description Magic Moments Collaborations between Artists and Young People is a remarkable collection of texts and images documenting insights of artists and institutions working on innovative creative projects with young people. Tracing their motives, working processes and achievements Magic Moments represents the first critical anthology on the subject of artists working with children. Including broader discussions on educational and social reform, environmentalism, vandalism, streetwork and citizenship this book works as a primary resource bringing together significant case studies and informed commentary. Magic Moments includes projects from the 1960s to the present day, from Stockholm to New York via London, and features case studies and analyses of exemplary programmes based on interviews and contextual essays. It demonstrates how work with young people, rather than being secondary to gallery-based art practice, has often been central for many artists and is becoming increasingly popular as a field of practice. The strategies documented in this book range from converting museums into playgrounds and forming girl bands to community radio stations, online forums, comic books and school visits.
