How do politically committed artists and socially engaged designers influence social processes?

Hosted by Brunnenpassage
Presented by Foro Cultural de Austria en México

Explore how art can be a catalyst for social change, focusing on specific fields of influence in our daily work. Based on the findings of the ArtSocialSpace Brunnenpassage in Vienna, Austria, creative methods will be shared that go beyond the traditionally defined field of culture, to ultimately participate in shaping social processes. This session is a space designed to operate as a laboratory for transcultural and co-creative art practice.

Address societal questions during this breakout session. Society grows increasingly heterogeneous regarding diverse backgrounds, languages, living conditions and cultural practices: How can formats be developed that foster an art production that lives up to the social plurality? What does this mean for politically committed artists and socially engaged designers?
