Performing Change Panel 3: The Art of Performing Political Innovation by EyebeamNYC published on 2013-11-06T16:08:05Z Speakers: Carne Ross, George E. Sánchez, Denisse Andrade Arévalo. Moderator: Paolo Cirio. The talk will examine forms of political innovation as a potential art form. During accelerated ideological and economic crises, society still possesses powerful tools and knowledge that can be applied towards radical social change as never before. Today, reinventing social structures is a crucial creative challenge, which is a process of experimentation dedicated to a renewed political project. Carne Ross will discuss a form of participatory radical democracy through decentralized leadership and alternative banking. Performer George Emilio Sánchez will present projects that engage with participatory budgeting and learning through performances as a means to foster social engagement. Curator Denisse Andrade Arévalo will talk about art practices that, from a critical standpoint, evoke collectivity and suggest an engagement with - directly or indirectly - oppositional movements.
