Material : public works - the bridge 2000

This publication develops out of a work produced for the Protest & Survive exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery, which involved the construction of a bridge between the gallery cafe and the adjacent Freedom Press anarchist bookshop. Such a project set out to open a dialogue about the relationship between art and politics. The linking function of the bridge and its remit as a 'communicative' device is intended to be continued by this publication.

Modelled on a French government document, this book aims to reveal both the structure of the bridge and the process of artistic production as a mutual activity. Through the reproduction of correspondence and dialogue between the various parties the hidden support systems of production become transparent.
