Art and Politics|2018-2019

Each year the Humanities Lab undertakes an investigation of a specific question or topic. For the 2018-2019 academic year we are investigating the relationship between art and politics, especially focusing on interdisciplinary cultural and social perspectives.

Join us for one event or for the whole series! All events are free and open to the public.

Art and Politics

Our investigation this year brings together artists, critics, activists,  and museum curators in order to explore the ways in which art participates in and structures the public sphere.
