Art and Politics Now

LSE Arts public lecture

Since the turn of the 21st century, contemporary artists have increasingly engaged with some of the most pressing issues facing our world, from globalisation, migration and citizenship to conflict, terrorism and social activism. In this talk, Dr Anthony Downey explores the implications of this development, for both art and politics alike. 'Art and Politics Now' by Anthony Downey is published by Thames & Hudson (@thamesandhudson) on 13 October.

Anthony Downey is the Progamme Director for MA, Contemporary Art at Sotheby’s Institute. He sits on the Editorial Board of Third Text and edits Ibraaz, a research forum on the Middle East and North Africa (www.ibraaz.org). His research activities and teaching focuses on North African and Middle Eastern artists, collaborative and participative art practices, human rights, bio-politics and migration, and the potential for an ethics of engagement within the context of contemporary art practices.
