Professions Performing in Art
Here we see how people working in other fields have become involved in the process of making art – either intentionally or not. The artworks, or documentations of artworks, often address power structures, providing moments of resistance, subversion or affirmation. They might incorporate footage from surveillance camera operators or records from customs officers, or turn a sold-out charter flight into an empty gesture. In each case professional activity activates the artwork.
