Kick-off meeting new platform for artistic research
- Monday 2 July 2018
- Anna van Buerenplein
Students, staff and alumni are welcome to join the kick-off meeting of Art Research Convergance (ARC), a new outreach initiative of Leiden University for artistic research. ARC hosts exhibitions, installations, lectures and performances every first Monday of the month in the cultural hotspots in The Hague.
The kick-off meeting theme is about 'power'. Power is the ability to act and have others act in particular ways. Now, since acting and causing others to act is precisely what puts society in motion, then social life must be about power too, that is, about acting in relation to one another. But is there anyone behind the wheel? Who are the players in the network of power that keeps the world turning? Different versions of these questions are explored by the artists-researchers featuring in this ARC session, the first one of the season 2018.
