Title

Going Out, Lecture by Nikos Papastergiadis (Australia), Professor, School of Culture and Communication, University of Melbourne

Description

What follows is not so much a history of art, or an impressionist version of the sociology of the city, but a gazetteer of cultural ideas amd artistic practices, from which Nikos Papastergiadis' investigation will draw, and which have been influential in shaping the contours of contemporary experiences. It is in the spirit of the ancient gazetter, that is not so much a gathering of random events, but an account that navigates the contours of the aesthetic experiments and philosophical ruminations of contemporary urban experience. It is an outline of the sensibility that is more than just urban and poetic. This expansive sensibility tends to be understood as either a political effort to democratise art in the lifeworld of communities, or an aesthetic exploration that reaches all the way to the cosmos. What this gazetteer reveals is that these two gestures are not necessarily separate from each other, and that artists oscillate between both the political and the cosmic categories of thinking and action.

Part of Art, Urban Change, and the Public Sphere: Public Art Education Summit from 17 - 19 October 2019.
