Nikos Papastergiadis, Into Cosmos: the cosmopolitan imaginary in contemporary art
28 November 2012, 19.00
Cosmopolitanism is an idea of our place in the world and an ideal of how to belong with other people. At its most utopian level cosmopolitanism proclaims a form of belonging that is free of boundaries and is open to the sensory awareness of the universe. It proposes the widest possible sphere of belonging and freedom. In this lecture I seek to explore the extent to which the world making activity of contemporary art is a form of the cosmopolitan imaginary.
