Faire Monde(s): Issue 2 “Artist collectives, Alternative initiatives”

The second issue of Faire Monde(s) is organized around the theme “Collectifs d’artistes, Initiatives alternatives” [Artist collectives, Alternative initiatives]. Faire Monde(s) will publish an article every Friday (with the exception of December 24 and 31). The first article in this series is Patrick Chamoiseau’s “Face aux visites de la Beauté” (published in three languages: English, French, and Spanish.) 

Description: Faced with a global context and underpinned by an artistic conception of engagement, many popular initiatives began, appearing in numerous peripheries. Art reasserts itself here as a true system of social transformation. Which are these spaces of sovereignty in the art world: artists’ collectives, alternative exhibition venues, alternative education … How are these initiatives represented in the Caribbean?
