art as evidence: when art meets denunciation

10 May



free admission



Art as evidence. In other words, using art to shed light on a world that would otherwise be invisible. This conceptual framework for exploring the potential of art to uncover facts, expose wrongdoing and raise awareness of social, political and technological issues was coined a decade ago by the film director Laura Poitras (Citizenfour, All Beauty and Car[bio]nage). The talk will introduce the theme of disruption in relation to art and whistleblowing.
Drawing on the events and research programme at the Disruption Network Lab in Berlin, Germany, through the voice of its founder and director Tatiana Bazzichelli and the artistic work of Joana Moll, the conference traces the background to the concept of art as evidence and the impact of whistleblowing on art and culture, from the early WikiLeaks projects to the revelations of Edward Snowden.
