Invitation: ‘Protest Art’

Protest Art – Panel Discussion
10 December | 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

What is protest art? What are its limits and what are its possibilities? Might there be a unique role for art in protest or does the political statement diminish the art? And once a piece of art becomes popular in the art world, can it still be protest art? We bring together those at the forefront of making and thinking about protest art to discuss what it has been, what it is, and what it might be.

Sacha Golob, Director, Centre for Philosophy and the Visual Arts, King’s College London

Robert Montgomery, Poet and artist, Author of Echos of Voices in the High Towers

Stephanie Schwartz, Lecturer, American Modernism, UCL

Chair:
Sarah Fine, Fellow, Forum for Philosophy; Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, KCL
