Brack Editors turn their gaze toward the future – as imagined by a participative, creative public emergent in socially engaged art. This issue explores selected artistic projects committed to generative and regenerative environmental practices in community across Asia.
These essays follow a two-year endeavour of #BrackChats asking the central question “What sustains us?”, with art and cultural practitioners: Bellini Yu, Daisuke Takeya, Izzaty Ishak, Kok Heng Leun, Zikri Rahman, Michelle Lai, Faiz bin Zohri, Natalia Ludmila, Fung Lee, Chu Hao Pei, and Meridel Rubinstein.
The conversations and in-depth articles explore new and emerging developments in ASEAN in socially engaged, public participative and community art, and consider environmental structures that, as we barrel ahead, are falling apart.
Edited by Melanie Chua and contributing editor Kei Franklin.
