Published to document Skol’s 2000-2001 season dedicated to new forms of “relational” practices, this anthology doubles as a catalogue featuring comments and meditations on that theme, present in the proceedings of a seminar entitled Des formes de l’art aux formes de vie. More than 35 contributions by artists and theoreticians are grouped under the following four headings: infiltration (investing the public space), circulation (using the object), encounters (questioning being together) and resistance (redefining “being an artist”).
