Waag Future Talks: Changing Society through Art

Future Talks returns! Tabo Goudswaard discusses the role of the creative sector in societal challenges. After previous episodes on activism, 'maakbaarheid' and collaborations with big businesses, the fourth episode zooms in on critical art. 

With present-day artists and designers, we will speak about problems in society such as poverty, economic extortion and discrimination. Five renowned artists, among whom are Renzo Martens, Matthieu Kasiama, Ced'art Tamasala, Jeanne van Heeswijk, Ahmet Polat and Jörgen Tjon A Fong, will engage in a discussion on their research and artworks, and how they try to bring about change in society.
