抄録: In this thesis, I will examine the aesthetics of participation in art by analyzing how participatory tactics used by Dadaists during the historic avant-garde inform contemporary new media practices. I argue that Dadaists activated participatory methods in the early 20th century through chance encounters and social engagements, which resulted in the emergence of a participatory subject. Through an analysis of the theoretical framework of participatory aesthetics, I will show how the trajectory of the participatory subject, and participation in art more broadly, is problematized by the rise of digital technologies and new media practices. I maintain that the trajectory of participatory aesthetics from the historic avant-garde to its contemporary iterations is continually informed by social activism. I demonstrate this through the analysis of artworks that collapse the boundaries between artist and audience, in order to point to the intersection of the Internet and participatory aesthetics.
