how about "Participation" from the Whitechapel: Documents of Contemporary Art series? i believe it was up for nomination the first go round. it's a collection of essays on what it means for audiences/viewers to participate in their experiences of art by luminaries like Umberto Eco, Bertolt Brecht, Roland Barthes, Félix Guattari, Jacques Rancière, Joseph Beuys & Augusto Boal to name just a few. it seems to me that coming from "Entangled" with its focus on all our techno/media extensions of live performance to an emphasis on direct human engagement would be a rather good contrast. plus, i just ordered it and it is probably waiting for me on my stoop this very afternoon...

Hi Adrian, I second that idea. Its a great book and would make for an interesting contrast with Entangled. Here is the link to it if others are interested in taking a look.

FYI, i was a trifle misled by the amazon blurb.. there don't appear to be any essays by mssrs. boal or brecht. still bunches of great stuff tho!
