Participation Is Risky: Approaches to Joint Creative Processes Edited by Liesbeth Huybrechts — Amsterdam, Netherlands
Participation Is Risky describes the negotiations that designers and artists engage in when setting up participatory projects with familiar and strange, public and private, professional and amateur, and other participants. These negotiations are defined as risky trade-offs, since 'risky' reflects the uncertainty that artists, designers and participants experience in participatory contexts. Based on case studies of real-life participatory projects and a review of the literature, this book offers insight in these uncertain, but valuable trade-offs in both a hands-on and reflective way.
