uterviews. Conversations with artists is comprised of 17 interviews with artists, selected from the archive of the ArtistTalk project. Outerviews presents authors active in a variety of artistic fields, ranging from film, video, painting, sound, performance and many trans-medium approaches. The conversations included illuminate the processes behind the making of art works, which in have in our view proposed the most interesting challenges to the common conceptions of art.
From the foreword: »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.«
