This text considers the institutional reality in which contemporary art predominately exists, a realm of art museums, art journals, art schools, art collectors etc., and proposes an alternative, more mutual social practice for art.
Written in 1976, this text was published by Midland Group Nottingham for the exhibition, Life Codes and Behaviour Parameters. The text focuses on externalising the purpose and meaning of art practice, seeing art as a an integral and positive agent within society.
