Summary note:
"Escaping easy categorization, Marion von Osten is an artist as much as a curator, an organizer-facilitator as much as a theorist, a teacher as much as an editor. In all these fields, her practice is distinctly process-oriented and collaborative. Marion von Osten: Once We Were Artists (A BAK Critical Reader in Artists' Practice) critically maps the political commitment of von Osten's influential work to feminism, theories of labor, knowledge production, education, and (post)coloniality. The contributions discuss some of the many aspects of this situated, collaborative, process-oriented work so as to provide a locus from which to further engage her transversal practice, as well as the subject of the artist at present. Contributors: Kader Attia, Sabeth Buchmann & Judith Hopf, Diedrich Diederichsen, Tom Holert, Brian Kuan Wood, Isabell Lorey, Angela McRobbie, Peter Spillmann, Marina Vishmidt, Tirdad Zolghadr"--Publisher's website.
