Online Workshop ART & SOCIETY – Artistic & Sociocultural Practices by Dagmara Genda
“The series of sessions is intended to engage the Fellows of ifa’s CrossCulture Programm in discussions and exercises about an artistic or art-centred engagement with society, politics and culture. The focus of the course is an examination of how art intersects with current societal concerns, including but not limited to decolonization, labour, social justice and climate change, and how art can be integrated into strategies of social and political engagement.
The goal of the workshops is not to reconceptualize art as an activist endeavour at the expense of all other approaches, but to critically examine how the arts as both a practice and industry can productively and critically function in a networked, and quickly changing world.” (Text & photo by courtesy of Dagmara Genda, photo: Dagmara Genda during her seminar at BAI, 2020)
