Art as a Political Witness

Edited by Kia Lindroos and Frank Möller

Verlag Barbara Budrich

The book explores the concept of artistic witnessing as political activity. In which ways may art and artists bear witness to political events? The Contributors engage with dance, film, photography, performance, poetry and theatre and explore artistic witnessing as political activity in a wide variety of case studies.
The essays are little gems, offering new ways to understand and to locate historical voices that have been lost or deliberately silenced. ID: International Dialogue
