Tate Modern Symposium: "Politics of the Social in Contemporary Art"

Can art intervene in social relations? What are the implications of involving art and its audiences in an ethical problem? And how do such practices relate to art's social institutions? This symposium examines the turn towards participatory and collaborative art forms and the ethical questions that raises.

Artist and author Wafaa Bilal will speak at the symposium, followed by film screenings from all the day's speakers. 

More information to come.
