Art and Activism (3er Encounter on Art and Activism)

18/09/2008 – 20/09/2008

Art and Activism (3er Encounter on Art and Activism)
Coordinated by: Nelo Vilar
18, 19 and 20 September 2008

A certain kind of action art continues to rehearse formulas that attempt to fuse art and life. One of them is that which considers the current media or “aesthetised” activism as revitalised performances that have lost their social meaning. In this hybrid context, they have established a problematic relationship with the sphere of autonomous art, with its history and institutions as well as with the new social movements. In other words, with High Culture as well as with certain forms of Popular Culture.  In this edition of the annual Encounter of Art and Action, we will temporarily sidestep practice and/or performance in order to ensure a higher participation from activist artists and researchers, who will contribute perspectives from the fields of sociology and cultural theory.
