The Anthropological Turn

01-10-2014

What happens when contemporary artists take over the tools and methods of the social sciences and then venture into unknown territory to make new work? Are artists turning to ethnography, archeology, and museology to question the politics and history of our time, or to restore the magic and wonder of their process? 

Participants:
Iman Issa (artist, Cairo & New York)
Naeem Mohaiemen (artist and writer, Dhaka & New York)
Dieter Roelstraete (Senior Curator, MCA, Chicago)
Kaelen Wilson-Goldie (writer, Beirut)
