Aesthetics in a Time of Emergency: Beyond the Relational-Aesthetic Paradigm Symposium PROJECT LIST

IF relational aesthetics proposes new kinds of relation between spectators (not between art its public but within that public), THEN Is this a response to changes in art or changes in socio-economic-political structures? Can a sociable art take a political turn? How do new technologies of sociability address this? How does art or theory address global issues such as climate change and social division? Is there a viable aesthetic for today’s time of emergency?

Speakers: Geoff Cox, HeHe, , David Butler & Vee Pollock, Jane Grant & John Matthias Alana Jelinek, Nicola Kirkham, Anya Lewin Malcolm Miles, Christoph Shaefer
