New from the noted Academy of Fine Arts Vienna series, this timely collection of essays on shame, reconciliation and agency addresses how ethnic difference, race, class, gender and sexuality shape reconciliation. To better understand the complexity of negotiating reconciliation in different societies and cultures as well as the ethical and methodological issues embedded in art-based research projects, this dense and provocative reader presents a variety of contributions, discussions and interviews in a variety of theoretical frameworks from Viennese artist/photographer Tal Adler, Hungarian curator Timea Junghaus and South African scholar Trevor Ngwane, among many others. Case studies and artistic projects explore collaborative and participatory research methods analyzing practices that turn shame into productive agency to prevent the recurrence of the institutional structures, patterns and events constitutive of racism in Europe and Africa. A poignent subject as we enter into a time, once again, when nationalism and intolerance are sweeping the globe.
