Forces of Art: Book launch
9 Nov 2020
On 26 November we co-hosted with Hivos and Prince Claus Fund the book launch of “Forces of Art – Perspectives from a Changing World”.
The programme featured a keynote by artist Heba Y. Amin; the performance ‘The Accelerator of the Imagination’ by artist Pierre-Christophe Gam; a panel discussion with some of the contributors to the book; an exchange among the editorial team members Jordi Baltà Portolés, Nora N. Khan, and Serubiri Moses, led by Carin Kuoni, the book’s editor-in-chief; and the launch of the book Forces of Art: Perspectives from a Changing World.
This thought-provoking and wide-ranging book is bound to challenge assumptions and stimulate new ideas about how crucial art and culture are. From curating Dakar as an “Art World City” or creating space for queerness in Uganda to digital practices of culture producers in Sri Lanka, #ForcesOfArt is a truly global effort that sheds new light on a critical debate about the value of the arts.
