Red on Red: A Symposium on Post-Socialist Art and Critical Theory (April 8-9, 2016, Yale University)

A discernible boom in politically engaged, leftist art practices and critical theory is underway in Eastern Europe and Russia, China, and in post-socialist countries of the Global South. This boom defies all expectations, emerging after the depoliticizing "transitions" to capitalism of the 1990s and the seemingly reactionary historical moment. Activists and art collectives, critics, poets, grassroots filmmakers, and video, performance and digital artists of all stripes are seeking alternative spaces for engaged aesthetic experimentation. In many cases, these aesthetic producers return to the emancipatory promises of earlier political and aesthetic experiments, reimagining them for the digital age.
