Guggenheim Forum "Satire, Critique, Provocation, Propaganda" Launches
From November 15 to 19, 2010, the Guggenheim Forum presents its fall installment, Satire, Critique, Provocation, Propaganda. The discussion brings together novelist and journalist Francisco Goldman, art historian Jennie Hirsh, and artist Martha Rosler, with moderator Julian Stallabrass, reader at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, to address the various ways artists deal with politics in their work. The group will consider the pros and cons of different approaches to political subject matter and look at politics in art and pop culture from the past and the present.
In addition to his duties as moderator, Stallabrass will host a one- hour live chat on Wednesday, November 17, at 4 pm EST, where site visitors can offer their thoughts and questions in real time.
The Guggenheim Forum is a continuing series of moderated online discussions catalyzing intelligent conversation on the arts, architecture, and design. Several times each year, experts from a variety of fields inquire into and debate topics related to the museum’s exhibition program. Satire, Critique, Provocation, Propaganda is presented in concert with the exhibition Chaos and Classicism: Art in France, Italy, and Germany 1918–1936, on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York from October 1, 2010, to January 9, 2011.
