Public Sphere by Performance Bojana Cvejić and Ana Vujanović / b_books, Berlin – Les laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, Pariz – TkH, Belgrade, 2012
The point of departure for the book is the recurrent problem of the public: the eclipse of the public sphere throughout the twentieth century as a marker of the crisis of representative democracy. The authors propose social choreography and social drama as well as an analysis of contemporary performance of the self as instruments that reframe the discussion on the public and its discontents.
