Abstract or Description

The conversation that follows, among three art theorists whose work focuses on emancipatory politics on the left and who participated together in recent art events in Europe examining the resurgence of fascist politics, poses this question: what might be the connection between the increasing normalisation of a political landscape strewn with fascist elements and the complex positioning of art between (or possibly, across) the status quo and its subversion? Here, ‘art’ is understood as the totality of practices that give us the ‘art field’ rather than just artworks, while the ‘political landscape’ is seen as being articulated, one way or another, through the hegemony of neoliberalism.
