Victoria and Albert Museum

The Gun Has No Trigger @ Gorvy Lecture Theatre, Dec 17

17 December 2014

A panel discussion titled ‘The Gun Has No Trigger: Conversations on Resistance in the 21st Century’ is taking place at the Victoria and Albert Museum‘s Gorvy Lecture Theatre today, December 17.

The London theatre will host the discussion, which looks at what resistance means in the 21st century through conversations with a handful of panelists, including artist Kendell Geers, writer and designer Daniël van der Velden of Metahaven, “anarchist anthropologist” and activist David Graeber, curator and art historian Marta Kuzma, and philosopher Nina Power.

The talks examine issues of structural violence, or, as the press release writes, “violence against the imagination and the manufacturing of hopelessness” by the “devastating logics of neoliberalism”, and the role (if any) of art in resistance.
