Absence|Presence Artist Talk – New Media Futures: Exploring Conditions of Knowledge Production

CanadaEnglish

Desh Pardesh ran multi-disciplinary workshops encouraging artistic experimentation and knowledge sharing at a time when access to formal learning and opportunities to participate in the larger mainstream cultural sector were minimal. These workshops and spaces of knowledge sharing are often spoken of and regarded as transformational—as catalysts that propelled people mildly curious in the arts to actually pursue their own practice. In this artist talk, Golboo Amani introduces us to her body of work, which often addresses and challenges the formal conditions of knowledge production and invites us to consider the power of alternate sites of pedagogy in creating collective agency and community building.

Artist: Golboo Amani
