Hito Steyerl’s “Politics of Art”
Wednesday, 27 June 2012
Access Gallery (222 East Georgia Street)
In tandem with Always Working, on view at Access Gallery, curator Gabrielle Moser co-facilitates a meeting of No Reading After the Internet. Focusing on artist Hito Steyerl’s 2010 e-flux essay, “Politics of Art: Contemporary Art and the Transition to Post-Democracy,” the group will discuss the text’s call for an art that examines the politics of its own production and its relation to the works in the exhibition. No Reading After the Internet is a monthly opportunity to gather and read a text aloud in hopes that it might provoke theoretical illumination on particular art works, or the broader scape within which such work exists.
