Where is Your Disruption? 

Fragmentation and Entanglement in Contemporaneity

Divisiveness has been a prominent feature in the cultural and political discourse of the past year. Given such fragmentation, what are the possibilities for remedying social cohesiveness? What role can art play in addressing the disruptiveness that permeates contemporaneity? This speaker series explores the manifold ways that disorder and fragmentation pervade contemporary art, design and new media theory, practice and exhibition. Our speakers will discuss some of the emerging ideas of a history not yet written – the history of a contemporary art entangled with political issues, social trends and millennial concerns.

The MA Program in Contemporary Art, Design and New Media Art Histories (CADN) at OCAD University invites the public to participate in two sets of conversations between artists, scholars and activists on the current state of art and politics. The first conversation occurs on March 7 and features artist Luis Jacob and philosopher Mark Kingwell.
