Lecture-performance Artist Development

Artist Development Lecture-performance by Richard Pettifer.

An Eastern European philosopher, communist, and fervent Marxist intellectual makes an argument about art activism and political art. He examines various self-help methods for artists — ranging from theater of the oppressed (Augusto Boal), relational aesthetics (Nicolas Bourriaud), and participatory art (Claire Bishop) — within the context of a neoliberal reality constructed to validate our identity whilst manipulating us according to its own purposes. Will include some jokes about former Yugoslavia.
