This article undertakes a close case study of Public and the largercontexts of its production in order to unpack these questions and explorehow mediated, site-specific performance might engage contemporarypublics, using what I wish to term a ‘divisive dramaturgy’. I use thisterm to point toward the way Public creates multiple audiences andpositions them, over its duration, in a series of distinct relationships. Indoing so, I argue that Public transposes a series of concerns surroundingthe corporate provision of contemporary public spaces, both actual and virtual, and suggests an innovative artistic response to the complexlayering of networks that comprise (and compromise) the contemporarypublic sphere.
