This bilingual catalogue accompanies the first retrospective of the British artist, Loraine Leeson. It documents her projects and their reception from the mid 70s until today. Leeson's work combines political issues, aesthetics and critiques of representation, education work and field research. It is an essential referencefor a younger generation of artists, who work with strategies of mediation, participation and Institutional Critique.
Under various labels such as "East London Health Project", "Docklands Community Poster Project", "The Art of Change or currently, cSPACE Loraine Leeson -alone or together with her then partner Peter Dunn- has continuously worked in collaborations. In a richly illustrated text, Loraine Leeson reflects upon the changing production and poiitical conditions that were fundamental to her work and puts them in relation to her current practice. A comprehensive bibliography, as well as a systematic listing of political and personal events in England and Germany from 1975 to 2005 delivers background material to this autobiographical retrospect. Grant Kester, an art historician at the University of California and author of "Conversation Pieces -Community and Communication in Modern Art" (Berkeley, 2004) discusses Loraine Lesson's work from the perspective of the English debate about "Relational Aesthetics" and activism in art. Contributions from Elisabeth Mayerhofer, Katharina Jendermann, Nanna Lüth, Birgit kammerlohr and carmen Mörsch as well as integrated interviews with contemporary witness supplement the documentation through historical contextualisation and cultural theoretical reflections.
