Anthony Schrag: The Artist as Social Worker vs The Artist as a Social Wanker
Examining the function of (and ethics contained in) working with people, this talk by Anthony Schrag frames a theoretical basis for cultural projects happening outside of traditional art spaces and explores the dynamics that emerge when working with communities.
Anthony Schrag is a practitioner and a researcher with an interest in the ethical complications that arise when ‘working with people’. This talk begins by framing a historical and theoretical basis for cultural projects happening outside of traditional art spaces (i.e., community engagement, public film projects, political theatre activisms, participation, etc.) and explores the relations of power and problematics that emerge when working within and with communities.
