Join us for a long afternoon of discussions on “Change Utopia!” at MAC Niteroi, on Friday 21st February, 15H30-19H00. Before the talk starts, you can visit Carlo Vergara’s exhibition Sudario at the presence of the artist.
Protests in Brazil, crisis in Europe, political stagnation in China. Our current social, economic, and cultural models are failing us everywhere. Artists, philosophers, and cultural practitioners have historically been at the heart of a drive to radically critique the present and imagine alternative futures, positing a radical break and fostering new forms of living together and new scales of values. This final event of the Transnational Dialogues Brazil series brings together an international group of artists, theorists, and activists to discuss the role of creativity and the arts in imagining and opening up alternative futures. Session 1: Change Utopia! Brazil, Europe, Russia, and China between global markets and the search for new development models. Session 2: Protest! Politics, Arts, Imagination. Session 3: Spaced out: Cultural policies and urban space
