This innovative new book contributes greatly to important emerging and interdisciplinary fields of research within performance studies, such as the problems of art and activism, spectator engagement, artistic research, and an ecology of aesthetic attention and perception. The author combines artistic practice and scholarly engagement with critical theory, which contributes to the research environment for both researchers and practitioners in the arts.

This book moves beyond the former art and performance participatory paradigm into a new one, which the author conceptualizes as ‘Inhabitation’. Inhabitational art works move beyond both spectatorship and temporary participation and invite the ‘audience-participant’ to live inside the artwork.

It also introduces the notion of ‘democratizing the aesthetic’ as a new artistic and didactic strategy, carving the path towards more sustainable futures through the stimulation of ecologic connectedness unfolding in highly sensuous (sensory-evoking) spaces.


Author: Dr. Gry Worre Hallberg is the Co-founder and Artistic Director of the international performance group Sisters Hope. Advocating a more sustainable future through the arts, see also her TEDx talks Sensuous Society (2013) and Sensuous Learning (2015).
