'Being Difficult'

02-10-2012

A panel on refusal and responsibility - Where there is no consensus among artists, critics and curators on professional standards or ethical principles, how does refusal come to define responsibility and vice versa? When does refusal protect the work that artists do, and when does it become an excuse masking other motives, particularly in the Middle East?

Participants:
Hassan Khan (Artist, Cairo)
Akram Zaatari (Artist, Beirut)
Vasif Kortun (Director of Research and Programs, SALT, Istanbul)
Chair: Kaelen Wilson-Goldie (Writer, Beirut)
