About the Book
preface: persona/e |
rose van mierlo | john ros
our opening edition is an introduction as well as a question. what does it mean to be a person? where is the limit between the intimately known, and the publicly strange? which fictions underwrite our sense of being in the world, of being alive, of being perceived both by ourselves and others? in a time of virtual space, reality tv, and online personalities, how do we negotiate, expand, and play with the porous limits between self and other?
this book is john ros' contribution to the collaboration. the full collaboration can be viewer at intermission museum's website.
Founded in January 2017 as an artist-run initiative, Stand4 Gallery and Community Arts Center’s pursuit is to be alive and working towards a better world through the arts as an active medium of engagement. Stand4 serves as a generator of meaning, action, agency, collaboration, and social justice. It is shapeless, non-conforming, and responsive to the times. Stand4 is meant to exist as a catalyst: a way to envision a more socially and environmentally just future.
