"Antagonism and Relational Aesthetics" by Claire Bishop

Claire Bishop writes about Bourriaud's interpretation of relational aesthetics by summarizing his point of view. She discusses the work of Liam Gillick and Rirkrit Tiravanija because Bourriaud uses them as prime examples of artists that work with relational aesthetics. Bishop contrasts these artists with the work of Thomas Hirschorn and Santiago Sierra. She claims that the work of Hirschorn and Sierra is better because it is more politically focused, less open-ended, and more democratic.
