ARTocracy, authored by Claudia Zeiske and Nuno Sacramento, provides insight into the organisation of collaborative projects through hands-on practice and applied examples. It provides practical guidance - from the definition of each theme to the selection of artists, as well as key strategies for funding, marketing, education, and artistic output - paying tribute to the precarious balance between artistic quality and social consequence.

The book features a foreword by Paul Shepheard and essays by Lucy Lippard and Nina Möntmann. It is now available from our online shop.

"Art keeps its inner workings secrets, like a guarded craft…until now. Artocracy shares a committed way of working—it's brave to put it out there, and also generous. The methodology at the heart of this handbook, with diagrams that will prove important guides, is also a demonstration of the coming of age of public practices that are open and in which learning is always part of the process. And Artocracy does more: it proposes art as one component among many in the makeup of a place, but a constant one, for without it, something vital is missing." Mary Jane Jacob
