Overview

In 2005, the great New York cultural arts organization Creative Time brought together 39 artists, educators and thinkers over a series of intimate dinner parties. Critical conversations were initiated, ideas were discussed and challenged, and all of it was recorded for posterity in Who Cares. The topics included how art functions as public practice, the globalization of creative economies, the dominance of restrictive notions of beauty, and the war culture in which we live today. The countercultural motivation of the project was best explained in the words of Doug Ashford: "I have always wanted to see how the ideas of artists can affect everyday life in this city and how they can ignite dialogue and participation." Participants include Ashford, Julie Ault, Hans Haacke, Emily Jacir, Lucy Lippard, Daniel Martinez, Marlene McCarty, Helen Molesworth, Anne Pasternak, Paul Pfeiffer, Michael Rakowitz, Martha Rosler, Ralph Rugoff, Amy Sillman, Allison Smith, Kiki Smith and David Levi Strauss.
