Dialogue, Collaboration, and Antagonism: Options for Activist Visual Practice
MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines three theoretical models of Dialogue: that of the ancient Greeks, that of two philosophers out of a Jewish tradition, Emmanuel Lévinas and Martin Buber, and that of critical theorist Jurgen Habermas. Then it offers a critique of consensual dialogue in consideration of the work of Michel Foucault, Mikhail Bakhtin, Ernesto Laclau & Chantal Mouffe. Finally, with additional recourse to the work of Nicolas Bourriaud it examines options for both antagonism and consensus in activist visual practice.
