The Bureau's strategy of being at all points in the cycle,
or system, in the production of works (making the work,
tech stuff, conceptual, design and packaging) is an interesting
one for other artists to consider. I'd say the Bureau's work is
one of the most complete articulations of this strategy.
British contemporary artists have been struggling along in this
vein for some time, showing work in artist run spaces with some
sort of collective vision or manifesto and a strong sense of
context and site, and often hopping across the line that
conventionally marks fine art from design.
