Norie Neumark 24 Part I Critical Perspectives on Distance Art/Activist Practices This part of the volume provides critical frameworks for understanding distance art and activist projects. The authors approach their material from the point of view of cultural theorists or historians rather than involved artists (although, as pointed out in the volume’s introduction, some of the authors are artists and were involved in some of the projects).

Smith also shows how artists explored the transformative interconnections among collectivity, art, creative production, and networks. As Braun too argues, what is important is the way each medium transforms experience. Thus distance art/ activism is about the process of transformation rather than the end result of transformation. It is, Braun foregrounds, about “radical transformations of everyday and familiar cultural relationships and problems” (76).
