Can art intervene in social relations? What are the implications of involving art and its audiences in an ethical problem? And how do such practices relate to art’s social institutions? This symposium examines the turn towards participatory and collaborative art forms and the ethical questions that such practices raise. Featuring a keynote by Professor Shannon Jackson and contributions from Wafaa Bilal, Emma Dowling, Grupo Etcétera, Gavin Grindon, Anja Kanngieser, Fran Lloyd, Renzo Martens, Not an Alternative, Luke Skrebowski, Wochenklausur and Ztohoven. 

The symposium will be followed by film screenings by the day’s speakers.
