Citizen Participation: Diagrams and Directives

  • Bullet Space 292 E3rd Street New York USA (map)

Citizen Participation: Diagrams and Directives is a practical exhibition, inviting collectives to consider the aesthetic and political forms of their internal organization and critically investigate citizen control, delegated power, partnership, placation, consultation, informing, therapy, and manipulation (the eight rungs on Arnstein’s “ladder”) through projects and pieces including participatory artworks, installation, performance, and video.
