PROTEST, PICNIC, POIESIS: How to Curate Art in the Public with KAREN VAN DEN BERG

The current debate about public art is dominated by terms and concepts such as the right to the city, local knowledge and social engagement.  Consequently, collaborative or collective modes of production have become more important and the articulations of protest culture, collaborative art projects and Street Art have taken on a new significance. 

In the context of this changing background, Karen van den Berg, professor and chair of Art Theory and Curating, Zeppelin University, Germany will share some thoughts about how to shape policy and curate art in the public sphere today.

Co-sponsored by the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center and the Fine Arts Program, School of Art Media and Technology.
