The Future(s) of Power #2 talk at London’s Somerset House Studios takes place on December 12.
The second of four events curated by Superflux (Somerset’s studio residents) will “explore the influence and impact of artistic power to wider society” and features musician Brian Eno, writer Juliet Jacques, artist Liv Wynter and Jinan Younis of gal-dem.
The evening asks questions like ‘does their success and exposure empower participation in political discourse?’ and ‘does the artistic community wield its power to the best of its ability?’ It will look at how we engage with our current sociopolitical climate and will explore/debate the tools and strategies needed to “radically challenge and provoke change.”**
