Following on from last year’s “Truth is concrete – a 24/7 marathon camp on artistic strategies in politics and political strategies in art”, the conference is an attempt by steirischer herbst to set up an international discourse platform for philosophical, artistic and political exchange: to get to the bottom of the disaster and to open up new spaces of liberty and practice. In the form of lectures, round-tables and artist presentations, platform focuses on key topics such as participation in post-revolutionary times and decolonialism along with new politics of organising economy and labour.
