Outerviews. Conversations With Artists
Launch of the book. Presentation by the editors Neja Tomšič and Martin Bricelj Baraga
»OUTERVIEWS presents a mosaic of different personas, hailing from different backgrounds and active in a large variety of artistic fields, some very hard to pin down. But we claim that what unifies these artists in their very different approaches, is a drive to contribute to social reality in a highly critical, yet constructive way. Our approach in these conversations was therefore in looking for world views – the underlying observations and individual positioning in the world, which is a prerequisite for any socially engaged artistic practice.
