Philosophical Frameworks for Experimental Artmaking
What is the role of the artist in today’s rapidly evolving political landscape? How does critical reflection inform the attempt to balance the often conflicting demands of aesthetic exploration on one hand and engaged citizenship on the other? Are there philosophical frameworks for experimental artmaking that simultaneously support authentic political resistance?
<fidget> offers a series of three reading group sessions this spring, where we will together encounter and unpack texts by both contemporary and historical thinkers, placing their work in the context of experimental artmaking and the politics of resistance.
