LECTURE

CENTER FOR ARTISTIC ACTIVISM

ICIA has invited the founders Stephen Duncombe (sociologist) and Steve Lambert (artist), of Center for Artistic Activism in New Nork to hold an open lecture.

The Center for Artistic Activism is a place to explore, analyze, and strengthen connections between social activism and artistic practice.  Creative activism  is more than just an innovative tactic, it is an entire approach: a perspective, a practice, a philosophy. Everyone with an interest in the relation between artistic practice and social acitivism is welcome to this open lecture about Center for Artistic Activism, which follows by an artist presentation by Steve Lambert.

The lecture is starting up a three day workshop – State of the Arts Part II: The Role of the Artist as Acitivist in the Age of Neoliberalism – in relation to the upcoming exhibition Another Swedish Image, August 22 – September 15. The three days will be a preparation workshop with the participating artists, poets, activists and curators in the project.

The workshop State of the Arts Part II: The Role of the Artist as Acitivist in the Age of Neoliberalism is made possible through a grant from the Swedish Arts Council, and by support from the Polish Institute and a generous collaboration with Hotel Mornington Stravanganza.
