'The ambivalence that surrounds the concept of community is the central theme for this collection of essays. In a world where people value their independence as much, if not more, than their interdependence, then the matrix of desires and obligations will always be re-negotiated.'
Edited by Nikos Papastergiadis with contributing essays from Graham Crow, Simon Edge, Richard Hylton, Doreen Massey, Lynda Morris, Yinka Shonibare and Tim Rollins, this book explores the different and complex relationships between artists and notions of community. It brings together the papers delivered during the one-day interdisciplinary conference 'Imagined Communities' at John Hansard Gallery in May 1996.
