relation to how institutions engage with the public and around considerations
of impact. In this volume, we use the term to emphasise a politically
active encounter between institutions, individuals and art practices
as they are used to effectively engage with the public sphere on a civic
level across physical and virtual spaces. Benjamin Stokes states, ‘the field
of political science is beginning to question its traditional definitions
of civic engagement to account for more “global citizens” and transnational
activism’ (Delwiche and Henderson 2013, 143). This multidisciplinary volume tracks across the fields and overlapping practices of political science, cultural geography, and performance studies. It seeks to address how and why physical and digital spaces can be analysed and utilised for new artistic practices that challenge traditional notions of how performance is political and how politics are performative.
