Within the context of ADN Think Tank and in collaboration with the collective Azotea (Ane Agirre and Juan Canela), a series of round tables condensed under the title: Vertex. Conversations on art, politics and society will start this month until June 2013.
Vertex. Conversations on art, politics and society wants to launch some questions, and present a series of examples and ways of acting, thinking about all these matters and bringing out a place for reflection and discussion around the position of art in the processes of the present, while debating about its potential as an active agent. Through discussion tables, activities and a final exhibition the aim is to trace lines of thinking and action from a critical and self-critical position, hearing other agents’ voices and proposals, in order to know and understand ineffective choices and try to draw new options for the future.
