Artistic Strike

Panel, Fri, Jan 16, 2015 with Claire Fontaine, Stewart Martin, Hito Steyerl; Moderation: Esther Leslie

The art strike is a curious figure in the landscape of contemporary art. In many of its most vivid instances it has been a figure of failure and folly. And yet it has also accumulated considerable respect as a decisive configuration of radical politics and art. This panel offers a range of new approaches to the art strike, occasioning a reconsideration of what it has been and what it might be, its stakes and its significance.

Panel with Claire Fontaine (Collective artist, Paris), Stewart Martin (Radical Philosophy & Visual Culture, Middlesex University, London), Hito Steyerl (Artist, Berlin); Moderation: Esther Leslie (Radical Philosophy & Humanities, Birkbeck, University of London)
