Creative Time Summit

Creative Time Summit

This link came via Fb + ‘this is tomorrow’. It referenced Trevor Paglen’s talk at the Creative Time Summit and linking on to the great archive of presentations.
There is a rewarding ‘Curatorial Statement’ by Nato Thompson Chief Curator at Creative Time in relation to ‘preaching to the choir’ and to the urgency of political and cultural actions.

Nato Thompson writes;
“In his book, The Inoperative Community, the philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy calls for a community that is “ever becoming.” As opposed to a community formed out of a nostalgia for a mythic past, he asks for one based on a resistance to power. Certainly such a community has the potential to emerge out of this gathering that shares an interest in contesting power using numerous tools culled from activism, art, and other disciplines. If such a community can develop toward a horizon of social change that confounds economic, racial, and geographic barriers, then it has the potential for providing unique responses to global, political injustices.”
