Synopsis

Art, Law, Power is a timely collection of essays curated to bring together scholarship from critical schools across the humanities and the social sciences. It offers a contemporary snapshot of intellectual and practical engagements with legal and artistic practices in countering power. This edition brings together voices and practitioners from across the globe to tell stories of old and new tactics and strategies found in the coming together of law, art, and power. Art historical understandings of law can be found sitting next to doctrinal depictions of street art and graffiti, philosophical questions of space, community, and autonomy next to cultural and legal ethnographies of control and incarceration. Across all authors there is a singular thread of art, law, and power in end times. The essays will be of interest to critical legal and communications scholars, lawyers, artists, art historians, and activists alike.
