Hachivi Edgar Heap of Birds, Barbara Pollack, Michael Rakowitz, and Olav Westphalen discuss their artistic practices in light of the complexities of homeland.
The symposium will be held at CUNY Graduate Center’s Martin E. Segal Theatre located at 365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street on the first floor.
Artists will make short presentations of their work, followed by a discussion on how the emergence of the concept of homeland has affected the climate for artistic production, the language of political and critical artistic practices, the impact of “homeland security” measures on siting public artworks, and the use of humor in producing and presenting politically charged projects.
