This is a reading group that aims to generate conversations on both the contemporary art scene and the practice of publishing and writing about art. We will be reading Seismopolite, Issue 13 this session, so join us for a lively discussion!
Initiated in New York City for the Public School by Orit Gat & Clara Halpern, a parallel version of this reading group is currently organised in New York, at Triangle and in London, at PEER.
To RSVP for this session, please contact: NTUCCAeducation@ntu.edu.sg
About Seismopolite Journal of Art and Politics
Seismopolite is a Norwegian-English quarterly which investigates the possibilities of artists and art scenes worldwide to reflect and influence their local political situation.
Seismopolite aims to highlight diverse artistic forms and strategies that stimulate new future trajectories in precarious socio-political situations, for example by critically examining geopolitical, cultural and historical master narratives, challenging and questioning the roots of censorship and violations of Human Rights, or working to reach understanding and bridge real or constructed differences in areas of conflict.
Related to this, Seismopolite also wishes to contribute to a renewed, critical attentiveness to the art market and art’s relation to neoliberal geopolitics – e.g. the role of art in geopolitical marketing strategies or its dependency on the neoliberal political geography of place/ space and local/ global – to assess the implications of these factors for the possibility of art to fill such political functions today.
