Hands Off Our Revolution: Complicity

Date May 31, 2017
Type Panel

Hands Off Our Revolution, a recently launched global coalition of artists and cultural practitioners, is dedicated to affirming the radical nature of art.

In their third New York event, artists, cultural practitioners, and public intellectuals discuss the way art counters the rising rhetoric of right-wing populism and fascism through this forum’s theme: complicity.

Discussion topics include:

How complicit is the art world in the reproduction of forms of power, which produce and sustain the condition for political disenfranchisement as well as ever-increasing economic stratification?

What, in fact, does complicity mean in these terms? Is it conscious, intentional, passive? Where do we draw the line? How can artists and arts institutions help provide the conditions for political liberation, economic security, and greater equality of opportunity?
