Social Intervention Art

In contrast to this classification(art) the term social sculpture (Joseph Beuys) itself already contains the idea that the different spheres are mingled, as they have common denominators.

Larry Caveney’s Statement of Social Interventional Performances

Larry Caveney’s Statement of Social Interventional Performances

It’s important to me that my work communicate on different levels. I want my work to be accessible to the general public. I want to create situations that will take them out of the state of isolation and bring them into a space of time that causes certain forgotten actions or freedoms that have been suppressed by socialization to emerge. Felix Guattari states:

"Just as I think it is illusory to aim at a step—by-step transformation of society, so I think that microscopic attempts, of the community and neighborhood committee type, the organization of day-nurseries in the faculty, and the like, play an absolutely crucial role. "
Bourriand, Nicolas. Relational Aesthetics Les presses du re’el. Le Consortium, 1996

The action of redefining form and finding spaces to interact within can give the artist an important role in the community and help to reform social consciousness by revealing different areas of social alienation. To reveal social isolation is the first step. Recognition of specific situations that provoke social isolation addressed by these different artists is the beginning of a new site-specific work. The idea of social interaction moves the artist out of their studio and into an interactive form of expression. The aesthetic of this interactive art form is the redirection of a symbol or ideology used in society by the ability to showcase a certain situation in a different context and perhaps define areas of social isolation. This aesthetic is defined as a means of making something better, or the action or interaction of creating a better living space...Or perhaps to rupture that point of social isolation.
