What Can Art Do for Post-Capitalism?

Tuesday, March 24th, 7PM

In their talk Suhail Malik and Nick Srnicek will address whether and how art can contribute to making a post-capitalist future. In particular, what demands does Left Accelerationism make on art (or should it make on art), and why is the currently prevalent mode of contemporary art not even capable of contributing to the construction of post-capitalism?
