Artistic freedom, angel of history
26.03.2023 from 15:30 to 16:30
On the occasion of the eighth edition of Biennale Democrazia, taking place in Turin from 03.22.2023 to 03.26. 2023, Director of Castello di Rivoli Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev will give a lecture entitled Artistic freedom, angel of history.
In the era of predictive statistics with the algorithm directing attention towards personalized choices, free choice is no longer freedom. In the era of narcissism relentlessly requiring producing creative and expressive tangible and intangible matter, free speech is no longer freedom. Artistic freedom is the angel of history, an intellectual, imaginative, tender horizon that produces online and offline, singular and collective consciousness. While crossing ruins, artistic freedom produces worlds. Here lies the supreme and welcome outdatedness of the theme of freedom, its libations.
