"Lowercase P: Artists & Politics" launches

A new series I'm heading up the Walker has launched:
In a campaign year, the media’s focus is mainly on Politics with a capital P and all it entails during a horse race of an election. This new series, running through Election Day, is interested in another kind of politics—the lowercase p concerns about power, inequality, and participation—and ways that artists’ personal values interface with it. At the heart of this project is the firm belief that artists’ voices are vital in the conversation about creating a better society.
Featuring: Paul Chan, JoAnn Verburg, Trevor Paglen, Eyal Weizman, Jem Cohen, Fritz Haeg, Erik Van Lieshout, Emmet Byrne, and Laurie Anderson (others TBD). Look for new interviews each week, now through Election Day.
