Peter Buotte, First Childhood Memory What is Relational Art? How is it different from other forms of art and how is it different from daily life itself? Relational as a term applied to art indicates an endeavor where the artist provides a context for human interaction, where human interaction itself is the medium of the art piece. Some would say this kind of art is saving the human race. In this episode, a panel of relational artists will discuss why relational art is so important in our times.
