What John Berger Saw  1999

paperback

210 x 140 mm

Editor Nikos Papastergiadis. The significance of John Berger’s work is not to be measured in biographical details or in the degree of influence on others, but its relevance for addressing the issues that bite into the present. Berger’s relevance can be witnessed in the connection that writers and artists have established between his work and their own diverse practices.
What John Berger Saw is about the relationships that have been forged between artists and writers through what contributing editor Nikos Papastergiadis calls the ‘practice of imaginary collaboration’. This collaboration is evidenced by the essays in this collection ¬– originally presented as conference papers in Canberra, September 1999 .
