Aesthetics and Anarchy
Talk by Distinguished Visitor Allan Antliff, Canada Research Chair in Modern and Contemporary Art, University of Victoria
Tuesday, April 8, 2014
Stokes 102, Haverford College
If, as Alejandro de Acosta argues, “becoming anarchist has to be something on the order of a seduction, a passionate attraction, the feeling of anarchy’s lure,” then aesthetics are integral to anarchism and art is an important site of enactment. Allan Antliff explores this issue in contemporary art, demarcating an aesthetic of tension which binds social critique and pre-figuration together so as to intensify the transformative efficacy of the artwork.
Organized by Associate Professor of Political Science Craig Borowiak in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery exhibit if I can't dance to it, it's not my revolution. Sponsored by the Distinguished Visitors Program. Presented by the Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities.
