"The art of Intervention" Event series, May - Dec 2018

Inspired by this year's exhibition of Martha Rosler and Hito Steyerl at Kunstmuseum Basel Gegenwart the event series contributes critical and visionary perspectives in art and culture on current debates about the multiple crises of capitalism, reignited nationalisms, gender and migration politics.
