A Restless Art: How participation won, and why it matters

The history, theory and practice of community art (and some other stuff)

“A Restless Art could be called ‘everything you ever wanted to know about participatory art, but were too afraid to ask’. The book combines a nuanced, careful study of participatory art with a detectable passion, born of Matarasso’s lifelong experience of the form. This is not dry dissection: the writing is lived, in the field, partisan.”
