You are welcome to join us in our second webinar, which is part of the series “Re-newing Reviewing: New and Innovative Practices among Art Critics”. The topic of discussion for the session will be Politics and Art Criticism.

Everything is political – and everything seems to be rapidly changed in a past few days. Art criticism may seem marginal and distant from political issues. However, structures of journalism and freedom of speech are concerns also for art critics. What are the terms of participation, of analysis, of recognition?

For this webinar, we welcome different views on the politics of art criticism.

Topics (will be specified)

Hate speech and art critics? PhD Tuija Saresma Adjunct Professor, currently works as Senior at the Department of Music, Art and Culture Studies, Research Centre for Contemporary Culture, University of Jyväskylä. Her current projects include Everyday Affective Practices Online: Producing, Experiencing and Managing Hate Speech in the Digital Era (HAFFECT), Mainstreaming Populism (MAPO), Crossing Borders – Ar­tistic Prac­tices in Per­for­ming and Nar­ra­ting Be­lon­ging (CROBOARTS), and Webs of Hate.

How can art criticism create visiblity for threatened artists and their work? Artists at Risk is a non-profit network institution at the intersection of human rights and the arts. Marita Muukkonen is an internationally active curator based in Helsinki, Ivor Stodolsky an internationally active curator, writer and theorist. They are co-founders of Perpetuum Mobile, which is a curatorial vehicle which brings together art, practice and enquiry. It acts as a conduit and engine to re-imagine certain basic historical, theoretical as well as practical paradigms in fields which often exist in disparate institutional frames and territories.

Can art criticism challenge political hegemonies? PhD Hanna Kuusela is university researcher and adjunct professor in the School of Communication, Media and Theatre at the University of Tampere, Finland, specialized in Cultural Studies and focusing both on contemporary literature and contemporary society.

After the speakers’ presentations (20-30 minutes), there will be time for discussion, questions, and comments.

The webinar will also be available to watch online after the date.
