How do people change the conditions of everyday life? This is the first question raised by Lyn Löwenstein's "interventionist" art. Löwenstein sees art practice as a research tool for mapping and revealing the dimensions of the imaginary and the institutional in society. Her installations Bridge, The Other March, and its predecessor Do Others Before They Do You - investigate popular activism as an expression of consciousness. These assemblages present culture and identity as a complex set of relations, which everybody (not only artists) can alter as they see fit.
