But Nado, really important term that has been used was coined by Nicolas Bourriaud and it’s relational aesthetics. Can you tell us a little bit about it? >> Well, just to say first of all, I have to say, there are so many terms. And it’s important to indicate to our friends in the audience that they are not necessarily clearly defined, but in fact come out of an emergence of an art form that different people have coined terms from around the world. So relational aesthetics was coined by Nicolas Bourriaud in 1992 in his book titled Relational Aesthetics. It’s also useful to know that none of the artists admit being part of it and actually refused to consider being part of it at all.

And as Nado was pointing out, these terms often are defined broadly, loosely, and they rarely are coined by artists themselves.
