The exhibition serves as a companion to the book Making Another World Possible : 10 Creative Time Summits, 10 Global Issues, 100 Art Projects (Routledge, 2019) co-edited by Corina L. Apostol, a landmark publication that takes stock of socially engaged cultural practices dealing with the urgency of contemporary social movements.
