Art Society Feedback Stephen Willats interview, Mousse Magazine
Self-organization and counter-consciousness are buzzwords for Stephen Willats. The conviction behind all his artistic output from the 1960s to the present is that people have great potential to bring about change, through creative resistence to imposed squalor. In this context, the artist’s diagrams are dynamic models of a new reality traditional artistic theory cannot grasp. With the artist, Emily Pethick reviews the meaning of his multidisciplinary incursions, from cybernetics to philosophy.
