VIDEO: Radio Etoile #3 - Over participatieve kunstpraktijken
How do you join a debate in a society in which ‘difference’ and ‘being different’ are increasingly explicit realities? Participative artistic practice is a form of artistic research in which artists and citizens explore the best form to enable alternative voices to be expressed and to facilitate this shared conversation. The artistic work serves as an engine for a broader process than only the creation of an end product.
How much has the world changed since 1977? The demand for a new political 'account' to replace the neo-liberal 'accounting' is growing ever louder. The search for for a star to show us a new way is growing ever more urgent. RADIO ETOILE questions the power of artists and cultural centres in our current circumstances. Can they or should they lead the way? We've invited artists, thinkers, lecturers and journalists to reflect on this question in seven one-hour sessions.
