Through a variety of lenses, this book examines contemporary artists use of the gift the distribution of goods and services as a medium for artistic production. Featuring a detailed survey of over fifty artists projects from fifteen countries, What We Want Is Free explores how these artists use their projects to connect participants to tangible goods and services that they might need, enjoy, and benefit from. Samples of these various projects include the creation of free commuter bus lines and medicinal plant gardens; the distribution of such services as free housework and computer programming; and the production of community media projects such as free commuter newspapers and democratic low-wattage radio stations.
