A conversation between Stephen Willats and Hans Ulrich Obrist
Originally published in 1973 by Gallery House Press and long out of print, the publication ‘The Artist as an Instigator of Changes in Social Cognition and Behaviour’ by Stephen Willats includes rigorous analyses of social forms of artistic production and descriptions of a number of projects by the artist. OP’s new edition features numerous additional images and a new introduction by Willats.
The speakers will consider the context in which the essay was written, with reference to the centre for Behavioural Art at Gallery House, in Exhibition Road, London. The ideas explored in the book are related to circumstances facing the artist practitioner today.
