Cultural Work and Critique of Globalisation
The notion of 'Transversality' traces new, ahierarchical
practices of networking that have developed specific contours
since Seattle, Gothenburg and Genoa in the heterogeneous
lines of flaring up against economic globalisation. Apart
from the transnational aspect in the formation of resistance
it refers to the condition of transsectorial cooperation
between artists, political activists, theorists, etc.
TRANSVERSAL leads off with analysing functions of the
cultural field in the context of the critique of globalisation.
Within the framework of 3 panels the following aspects
will be put up for discussion: the structural effects
of the cultural industries and an allegedly globalised
art field, cultural work in a local-transversal fashion
as in the context of migration and contemporary transnational-transversal
strategies between symbolic politics, media guerrilla
or theatrical intervention.
