Sabotage: (Self-)Destructive Practices in Latin American Contemporary Art, symposium, Friday 26th April, 2013

10 April 2013

Organised with generous support from UCL Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art and Rainhart Gallery.

This one-day symposium invites researchers and graduate students to examine the uses - and limitations - of sabotage in Latin American contemporary art and attempts to place the notion within a larger reflection on the politics of the image, the aesthetics of violence, the tensions between art and spectacle and the position and responsibility of the artist in the face of political turmoil or systemic injustice.
