ART, ACTIVISM & REPRESENTATION
Workshop & Discussion
Facilitated by Emily Waszak and Evgeny Shtorn
Limited to 15 participants*
This workshop will explore crucial and challenging questions around the ethics of representation and related tensions between art and activism. The issue of representation is made additionally complicated by observing the intersectional perspectives where the artist must simultaneously think about themselves in terms of their own class, race, gender and sexuality alongside that of the community within which they are working. This workshop will address these interrelated topics, examining the overlapping contradictions between activism and art.
