Art & truth & crisis

My spring seminar in Helsinki will be on “Art and truth in a time of crisis”. Lots of Foucault, I think. C u there!

The topic for the seminar is the question of what it means to “speak the truth” in art or art-based research. In a postmodern world the whole concept of truth is discredited, yet at a time of crisis the possibility of art to cut through ideologies and awaken the senses is called for, and various art forms and art-based knowledge have a major part in social movements. Thus the question of truth is entangled with questions of power, language and the public sphere.

1st meeting on Wednesday, the 8th of February
