What We Made presents a series of fifteen conversations in which contemporary artists who create activist, participatory work discuss the cooperative process. Colleagues from fields including architecture, art history, urban planning, and new media join the conversations.

Where does art end and social action begin? Who is the author of a cooperative project? In this lecture recorded on February 3, 2013, at the National Gallery of Art, Tom Finkelpearl celebrates his latest publication, What We Made: Conversations on Art and Social Cooperation, by providing an overview of socially cooperative art-where it comes from, what its artistic roots are, and why it can be considered valuable. Tania Bruguera and Mierle Laderman Ukeles, two of the most important artists working in America today in this field, then describe their work, focusing on a single project.

Social practice is an art medium focusing on engagement through human interaction and social discourse. a b Finkelpearl, Tom (2012). What we Made: conversations on art and social cooperation. Durham: Duke University Press. p. 132. ^ "Archived copy". Since people and their relationships form the medium of such works – rather than a particular process of production – social engagement is not only a part of a work’s organization, execution, or continuation, but also an aesthetic in itself: of interaction and development.

In What We Made, Tom Finkelpearl examines the activist, participatory, coauthored aesthetic experiences being created in contemporary art. He suggests social cooperation as a meaningful way to think about this work and provides a framework for understanding its emergence and acceptance. In a series of fifteen conversations, artists comment on their experiences working cooperatively, joined at times by colleagues from related fields, including social policy, architecture, art history, urban planning, and new media. Issues discussed include the experiences of working in public and of working with museums and libraries, opportunities for social change, the lines between education and art, spirituality, collaborative opportunities made available by new media, and the elusive criteria for evaluating cooperative art. Finkelpearl engages the art historians Grant Kester and Claire Bishop in conversation on the challenges of writing critically about this work and the aesthetic status of the dialogical encounter. He also interviews the often overlooked co-creators of cooperative art, "expert participants" who have worked with artists. In his conclusion, Finkelpearl argues that pragmatism offers a useful critical platform for understanding the experiential nature of social cooperation, and he brings pragmatism to bear in a discussion of Houston's Project Row Houses.

Comments to eBook What We Made: Conversations on Art and Social Cooperation
Dalallador
For those of us who have followed/produced/participated in community arts projects, "What We Made" is a significant reference book documenting the conceptual underpinnings and history of this contemporary art form. I found several of the case studies so moving...the statements of artists and those they worked with so important...that I find myself clipping and quoting them. And we've all got to see "Blot out the Sun," an independent film applying the rubric of James Joyce's "Ulysses" to the daily life of Jay's Gas Station in Portland, Oregon. Even the Whitney Biennial picked up this gem. Tom Finkelpearl's application of standard art history techniques in structuring this book, coupled with his respect for the artists involved and his love for their projects is evident throughout -- my favorite combination of deep intellectual engagement coupled with case studies and emotional bridges to the content.throughout.

Tom Finklepearl does an excellent job of covering not only the art pieces, but the stories and moments behind them, while also establishing how they fit into the overall narrative and evolution of social practice.

"There is a need to activate and bring awareness to these institutions and social forms that we are not taught to question; a grassroots inquiry into typically top-down organized formats of human interactions. Shake up assumptions, personalize and participate."
