FUSE 21-4: Fall 1998

In keeping with FUSE’s tradition of covering the arts and their cultural context, this issue considers how a sense of place and location is now dominated by an all-consuming surge toward globalization. A dislocation of artists’ practices ensues from these conditions. There is no set agenda for a territory to be covered or reclaimed here: the topics range from the local – the streets of Toronto, Inuit communities, artist-run centres dotting the country – to the transnational electronic domain (in which representations nonetheless always have a place of origin). The focus is on the appropriation and interruption of tactics used by globalizing fores, and thereby, on empowerment.
