To explore in which ways contemporary art practice resembles participant ethnography
To recognise the difference between the terms artistic methods and art practice
To reach a better understanding of how contemporary art practice can contribute to ethnographic processes with people
To ask if contemporary art can de-assemble and re-assemble the social in ways that conventional ethnographic methods might not be able to achieve
