    Aims and Scope

    How can art change society? What aesthetic quality does dialog bring to art? What is the role of autonomy in dialogical art? Dialogical Interventions investigates how dialogical art moves between the poles of social engagement, aesthetic autonomy and social change. Essays by international authors and interviews with socially and politically engaged artists and collectives focus on the relevance of dialogical and interventionist practices and their role in mediating new forms of knowledge and experience through art, thus opening up new prospects for this exciting arena of activity. Between the individual texts, artist insertions document social artistic practices on a visual level.
