In this dialogue workshop we will dive deep into the art of cruelty. The use of cruelty and violence in art - like we see in Markus Ohrn's Domestic Violence - has a long history of shocking the bourgeoisie into awareness. As aesthetic shock has been an important motor of cultural innovation for over a century, arriving at this age, we revisit this important question: Is violence still able to shock the bourgeoise into betterment, and if so, what bourgeoise and what betterment are we talking about? Are there proper or improper ways of bludgeoning audiences into getting the point? Led by Axel Pleeck, this workshop uses the dialogical format The Jar, which creates a dynamic discussion that allows everyone to speak and participate in an equal way.
