Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma presents ARS22 Gathering

October 11–12, 2022

We are invited to gather to talk about and practice critical thinking about the current world in ARS22—Gathering. The event is structured around four key topics: gender and identity, decolonial narratives and viewpoints, technology and the digital turn, ecology and more-than-human agencies. These themes are guided by anthropological, artistic, sociological, and philosophical positions. A natural progression from the ARS22—Living Encounters show is the ARS22 Gathering.

The speakers of the seminar include: Christina SharpeMel Y ChenAchille MbembeSlavs and TatarsPetra LaitiPirjo VirtanenNitin SawhneyAgnieszka Kurant and Elizabeth A. Povinelli. For full program, please visit the website
