Time: Wednesday 22 June 2016 from 15:00 to 19:00
For details about the event, see
Venue: Historisk Museum (Frederiks gate 2) and KORO (Kristian Augusts gate 23)
The seminar explores different aspects of art activism from a gender, queer, feminist and participatory perspective. What is the difference between presenting art with a political perspective in an art space, versus presenting it in a public space? How does the choice of exhibition venue affect the impact or force of political messages?
