Public conversation

Join six senior scholars and artists for the Clark conversation, “Art After Democracy.”  

This informal gathering centers loosely on post-1989 art to consider the place of critical politics under neoliberalism’s defamiliarization and spectacularization of democracy. Scheduled near the eve of the United States presidential election, the conversation is meant to both reflect and provoke.  

Participants include:  

Tania Bruguera, artist  

Jodi Dean, Hobart & William Smith Colleges  

Anthony Gardner, Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford  

Boris Groys, New York University

Christopher P. Heuer, Clark Art Institute, Research and Academic Program

Matthew Jesse Jackson, University of Chicago
