Join activist museum director Laura Raicovich—author of the new book CULTURE STRIKE: ART AND MUSEUMS IN AN AGE OF PROTEST—and Aruna D’Souza in conversation.
In CULTURE STRIKE, “Raicovich shows how art museums arose as colonial institutions bearing an ideology of neutrality that masks their role in upholding capitalist values. And she suggests how museums can be reinvented to serve better, public ends.”*
Following the online conversation, curators and writers Ken Chen, Dr. Kelli Morgan, and Helen Molesworth will respond in turn.
