All Art is Political: Writings on Performative Art is a collection of recent conversations and writings by Glasgow based writer and curator Sarah Lowndes (author of Social Sculpture: Rise of the Glasgow Art Scene). The collection opens with a previously unpublished conversation from 2008 between Lowndes, Art and Language collaborator Mayo Thompson and AMM member and forefather of electroacoustic sound, Keith Rowe. Also included are essays on Berlin-based artist Thea Djordjadze and Glasgow-based Turner Prize winner Richard Wright. A 2011 conversation between Lowndes and American conceptual artist Susan Hiller and an essay exploring the late autobiographical works of German-Swiss artist and writer Dieter Roth complete this series of investigations into the performative practices of leading contemporary artists.

MEDIA REVIEWS

An interesting and insightful collection of thoughts about the urgency of vision, how audiences work together with artists to enact the bodily labour of seeing and understanding, and how politics and the performative can be embedded in the material presence of art. Dr FIONA BRADLEY, DIRECTOR, FRUITMARKET GALLERY

In her observant close readings of artists' practices and interviews with artists, Sarah Lowndes shows how artists themselves have navigated this territory, giving attention to the question of politics from the perspective both of theory and of the artwork itself. MELISSA GRONLUND, EDITOR, AFTERALL
