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.
A conference organised by IG Kultur Österreich in cooperation with eipcp (European Institute for Progressive Cultural Policies)
