Creative Time Summit: Of Homelands and Revolution

29/9 2017 4 pm — 10:30 pm

The Creative Time Summit is an annual convening for thinkers, dreamers, and doers working at the intersection of art and politics. Functioning as a roving platform, The Summit brings together artists, activists, and other thought leaders engaging with today’s most pressing issues. The 10th Creative Time Summit, Of Homelands and Revolution will take place in Toronto, Canada from September 28 – 30, 2017, co-produced with The Power Plant and in collaboration with the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Of Homelands and Revolution explores the concept of ‘home’ in its intimate and immense dimensions: we consider urgent struggles for sovereign homelands, the violent borders that produce exile, displacement, and refugeeism, and the threats of virulent nationalism(s). At the same time we keep in sight ‘home’s’ relation to the heart, and the everyday and extraordinary realms of domestic life and hospitality.

The Summit meets tens of thousands of attendees in their hometowns through Livestream, as well as through over 100 satellite screening sites that host live events in cities from Dhaka to São Paulo. This year Kunsthalle Wien is part of the vast network of Screening Sites that enables attending the summit live all around the globe.

Speakers include: Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Allora and Calzadilla, Bouchra Khalili, Cannupa Hanska Lager, Carol Conde and Carl Beveridge, Chto Delat, Coco Fusco, Crack Rodriguez, Elizabeth Mpofu, Huhana Smith, Kent Monkman, Kinana Issa, Máret Ánne Sara, Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, Nabil al-Raee, Postcommodity, Srećko Horvat, Sylvia McAdam, Syrus Marcus Ware, Tings Chak, Vasif Kortun, Wanda Nanibush
