3 - PUBLICDEMOS PUBLIC SPACE DEMOCRACY

Public space is the place for assembly, the hub of democracy as well as the manifestation of power and (dis)empowerment of persons. PublicDemoS Project explores the ways in which new forms of public agency extend politics to everyday life experiences by avenues of artistic expressions and aesthetic forms. The core aim of this project is to understand new politics of performative citizenship and public (un)making in multicultural settings.

International Study Group on New Forms of Public Agency

Meeting 19th of May 2017

New forms of public agency carried by persons and in collectivity bring forth the everyday life politics, the phenomenological dimensions of politics. Citizens acting together and enacting in public, manifest collectively their presence, are resetting democratic agendas and questioning pre-established social contracts. The traditional Public Square or Maïdan becomes the hub of urban democratic imaginaries as actors from different horizons and array of groups occupy the place and turn it into a theatrical scene. Public space democracy emerges on its own political terms, in distinction from avenues of parties and voting. New forms of public agency in relation to social movements, but also in difference from political collective action and intrinsically related to the person and to the subjective realm will be examined.

International Study Group on Norm Conflicts and Art Forms in (Un)Making of Publics

Meeting 24th of March 2017

Public sphere has been conceptualized as a discursive realm, enlightened sphere of ideas, opinions and rational debate in a national context. In the contemporary era, cultural heterogeneity and global connections challenge the unity of national communities and its norms. Art participates to the agonistic dimension of the public sphere, challenges dominant norms and becomes part of controversies. Visual culture mobilizes affects, accelerates (mis)communications across the national boundaries in the construction of multicultural settings. Can art and aesthetic forms help to open up the emancipatory potential of the public sphere by exploring the ways in which plurality of perspectives can emerge in the contemporary societies? 

Interviews :

1.  Peter Ronald deSouza, professor at the Center for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS), Delhi

 "You are a professor at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies in Delhi and you are working on the painter MF Husain known as Indian Picasso. You are telling the story of the transformation from a celebrated artist to a national villain. Does this indicate that cultural pluralism in public life is in danger in India?" 

2.  Judit Carrera, director of the European Prize for Urban Space

 (http://publicspace.org/en), organized by the Centre for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona

(CCCB) and head of the debates and conferences program of CCCB

3.  Sarah Dornhof, postdoctoral fellow at Freie Universitat Berlin

"You presented a paper on the monument installation of Manaf Halbouni in Dresden as a way of reminding Syrian war. Is art a way of producing public memory?"
