Can art intervene in social relations? What are the implications of involving art and its audiences in an ethical problem? And how do such practices relate to art’s social institutions?

Featuring a keynote by Professor Shannon Jackson and contributions from Wafaa Bilal, Not an Alternative, Wochenklausur, Ztohoven, Renzo Martens, Grupo Etcétera, Gavin Grindon and Anja Kanngieser.

The symposium will be followed by film screenings by the day’s speakers.
