During the meeting held on Tuesday 15 we agreed upon starting working on a little piece of art/ criticism, that would collect a number of essays dealing with the intersection between the realm of the aesthetic and the political.
The body of literature assigned for the reading group meetings provides with an insightful theoretical background on this intersection. Yet, the aim of this piece of criticism is to bring these theories to life, and produce essays that critically engage with current (un)conventional forms of artistic expression that interleave with the political and philosophic life. To further examine this ambivalent relation, we also encourage the submission of art pieces that can help us question the role of art in formulating political ideals or actions.
The deadline for contributions will be set in mid February. Further details on logistics will be explained in upcoming posts
Looking forward to your contributions!
