Katrin Nenasheva’s third discussion within the cycle How Heroes Left and We stayed. Actionism 2020 will evolve around art activists’ interaction with people not related to art.
Actionist and art activist practices of the 2010s are intended to unite with various social groups as much as at working with them. Using participatory tactics, contemporary art activists often assume the voice of the isolated citizens, aiming to create a space for their direct articulation. In conversation with artists and enactors of their projects, Katrin Nenasheva will discuss whether current actionists and art activists are proficient enough in terms of engaging former prisoners, people with experience of violence, and people with physical or learning disabilities in art initiatives.
