This issue’s thematic section shows works that come from a wide variety of places and times, but all are marked by the notion of public visibility. These three bodies of work cover a wide spectrum of what defines the public space for artistic expression, ranging from the societal and cultural context that circumscribes what can be said, to the more specialized professional and worldly network that hosts and nourishes experiments and new artworks, to the civic and urban space in which artworks are put to the test of fitting with people’s daily lives and the constraints of urban planning.
