Meeting Martha Rosler: Lectures at GAM, Turin

On February 2nd in Turin, a talk by Johanna Burton as part of a talk series on participation: “Meeting Martha Rosler.” Earlier speakers have included Rosler, Yael Bartana, Katerina Gregos, Markus Miessen, and Chantal Mouffe. Description of the series:

Different contributions will handle the partial failure of the political-cultural idea of the ‘relational practices’ that have been delineating since the 1990s within the contemporary artistic and theoretical discourse. The crisis of active participation as a determining factor in political emancipation and in engaged activism will be read from different theoretical perspectives: artistic, historical, philosophical, as well as architectural and literary.
