Two dates: 1936 and 1972.
On the one hand, a time of emerging fascism and war. On the other, a time just after worldwide social conflicts culminated into the global protests of the late 1960’s.
Jumping between these two dates, how can we catch a glimpse of our contemporary moment?
. . . . . . . . . . . .
The next Goldsmiths Art Research Symposium is dedicated to these two dates – one day for each date. As artist researchers, we will read, experience, research, speak and dance 1936 and 1972. We will make history and, through this, we will think through its implications for now.
