This conversation brings contemporary visual art practices into the geopolitical framework that defines the dichotomic relations deeply ingrained in discourses of powers. In the past 18 months, the pandemic has revealed new narratives of local solidarity and international exclusion. Within a context of arguments of safety and responsibility co-existing with populist isolationism and self-interest, there is a compelling need to reflect on nationalism and its new and historic rationales.
Panelists: David Cotterrell; Olga Margarita Dávila, Norma Iglesias Prieto, Gro Sarauw; Chair: Carolina Lio
The symposium is part of the Empathy & Risk Dialogue series. Since 2017, these have been convened as multi-national conversations between policy-makers, artists and activists, exploring the contradictory versions of ‘truth’ that may lead progressively towards conflict.
