Product description

Since the work of Robert Smithson in the late 1960s, the notion of site specificity has been crucial to an understanding of contemporary art. Extending the debate, this book argues that the discipline of ethnography can enrich our conception of what site is. Commissioned essays, interviews and visual projects by ethnographers, artists and art critics reflect on this dialogue between art and ethnography. Together they comprise a critical overview of the discourse.
