Art/Politics Talk at the New School

FROM "SUSTAINING DEMOCRACY" TO THE STATE OF THE CIVIC:

DEBATES MARK 20 YEARS OF THE VERA LIST CENTER FOR ART & POLITICS

May 17 at The New School's Tishman Auditorium
Free and Open to the Public


2:30-4pm Call & Response III: The Political Aesthetic
The first decade of the 21st century has witnessed an explosion in the number of publications, conferences and exhibitions devoted to defining and assessing socially and politically engaged creative practices. Is “the political” as a driving force in art making here to stay as we grapple with its changed meaning in light of the 2011 global protests?
