Panel 1

Theme: What’s left?

Moderator: Ute Meta Bauer

SITAC VI takes place at CCUT, the institution commemorating the 1968 Tlatelolco Massacre. What’left? not only questions how Neoliberalism affects cultures all over the globe, but asks what’left of the 1968 Student Movement and its impact on society? And what’s left of the Gramscian notion of the artist as organic intellectual?

Panel 2

Theme: What’s left out?

Moderator: Ery Camara

Curator, Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso,

Mexico City

What’s left out? focuses on investigations by cultural acteurs and producers, shedding light on what has been hidden, as well as re-evaluating archives, opening closed doors and unwrapping what seems forgotten. What’s left out? questions the “authority” of those writing history and engages in how histories can be told differently.

Panel 3

Theme: What remains (to be done)?

Moderator: Osvaldo Sánchez

Director Museo de Arte Moderno, México City

What is the mandate of cultural ‘acteurs’ and producers today? What is the role of public art institutions? Whose voice and (his)story do they represent? What remains (to be done)? We suggest the reconstitution of a space for (political?) criticism and public discourse.
