Contemporary art is not on its own any more. It's no longer just 'art', it's art and politics and fiction and sex and death and horror and sleeping and reading and horse-riding and... No longer in splendid isolation, nor an autonomous specialism, art has become a space of transversality and connectivity, a movement which explicitly sets out to de-territorialise the disciplines, fields and institutions it works across. Art can be seen as an in-between space that produces temporary alliances between practices and fields.
