Abstract

4 Boys [for Beuys] came about thanks to an invitation by the artist Emily Underwood-Lee to the ‘Storytelling and Activism’ symposium at the University of South Wales in April 2015. The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home approached the symposium with the question ‘what activist story can we tell?’ This book is an attempt to answer that question. Four Institute boys, Neal, Gabriel, Sid and James, narrate their first ever protests with the help of their parents Lena Šimić and Gary Anderson and four activists x-Chris, Ritchie Hunter, Mel Evans and Ewa Jasiewicz. 4 Boys [for Beuys] is a public retelling of a family’s private history in dialogue with social and ecological justice movements. Contributors include Anna Feigenbaum, Chris Jones, Ritchie Hunter, Mel Evans and Ewa Jasiewicz.
