Claire Doherty - Situation

Doherty, Claire. ‘Introduction’. In Situation, edited by Claire Doherty, 12–19. London and Cambridge: Whitechapel Gallery and MIT Press, 2009.
“If we understand place as an unstable, shifting set of political, social, economic and material relations, and locality as produced and contested through a set of conditions that we might describe as situation, our experience of works which truly produce remarkable engagements with place will be characterized by a sense of dislocation – encouraging us no longer to look with the eyes of a tourist, but to become implicated in the jostling contingency of mobilities and relations that constitute contemporaneity.” (page 18)

I am really interested in this idea of ‘dislocation’ - by making connections across and between topics can a piece jostle us into a new way of seeing?
