The term "Rules of Engagement" (ROE) has a nasty ring to it, as we associate it with the directives governing the use of force in combat situations. Here we turn the notion upside-down and question how context and engagement sit together for artists and activists operating in particular and constraining circumstances. In other words which means and actions are used to devise one's own rules to engage meaningfully when one's safety, freedom of movement, or speech is curtailed?
