Critiques of Social Practice : Divisive Pilot Episode
with Keith Brown, Melissa Potter, Craig Harshaw, and Leah Gipson.
Recorded Live on Thursday, May 19th at Co-Prosperity Sphere
Our dialogue will consider the lack of ethics in social practice, how social practice as a term itself is problematic and essentially neo-liberal, how social practice is represented in the academy, how artists can operate from an authentic place of legitimacy in accordance with their direct experiences, how social practice often does not do anything to confront power or address the roots of social issues, and how the most written about social practice work often blames victims of oppression and exploitation by oppressing and exploiting them.
