WochenKlausur, an activist group of artists, has been successfully carrying out social projects since 1993. Exhibition space serves as an office and one will search in vain for a work of art. What is achieved instead by a few weeks of concentrated effort are concrete improvements for the underprivileged. The ten cases of successful intervention presented here illustrate a different option for art, taking it beyond the usual market-orientated mechanisms. The book WochenKlausur illustrates ways of working and strategies adopted by political art that does not operate with symbolic forms but adopts concrete measures, and in doing so opens up completely new possibilities.
