Art Movements in the City
Thurs 13 Oct 7pm Mackintosh Lecture Theatre
2011 HAS BEEN CALLED ‘THE YEAR OF PROTEST’
As mass movements in the Arab world challenge oppressive governments, students occupy campuses and massed groups of youths burn English cities, now is a good time to consider how collective action is taken, and channelled to positive effect.
What role can artists play?
What role have they played in the past?
