The globalization of art problematises existing notions of art. It is especially striking that nowadays art groups, networks, and movements worldwide are increasingly fostering involvement and direct relationships with their surroundings, and as such play an active part in the ongoing transformation processes.

ART IN ACTION thus draws attention to this development and presents some particularly interesting networks, which MAKE PEOPLE THINK!
