Synopsis

Alternative art practices and spaces in Australia will be considered with reference to events in Europe and America. Marxist and feminist initiatives will be analysed in detail. The concept of the 'global village,' will be examined and the successes and failures of the different initiatives will be studied in relation to contemporary theories and arts policy in Australia.
