How can the public collaborate in a radical Public art project? This symposium on public authorship and the limits of contemporary Public art will consider Jochen Gerz's recent work - The Future Monument and The Public Bench - produced for the Phoenix Initiative, Coventry's city centre regeneration project. It will debate the political and social dynamics of public authorship and the cultural function of alternative forms of Public art.
