Maja Bajevic. Women at Work-Washing Up. Performance/video. Cemberlitas Hamami, Istanbul.

Debates about the relationship of art to politics permeate the history of modern art, but during times of war and intense political conflict, they appear more pressing and raise a number of questions for practicing artists: What does art have to do with politics? Should political conflict inform artistic production and the content of artwork? What power does art have to make social and political change? In a panel discussion moderated by David Little, Director of Adult and Academic Programs at The Museum of Modern Art, artists, critics, and scholars address these questions and more. Panelists include artists Maja Bajevic and Paul Chan, cartoonist Tom Tomorrow, and writer Lawrence Weschler.

This program is free. No tickets required. Space is limited to 70 people.
