The Lords of Limit, training dark and light
And setting a tabu ‘twixt left and right,

– W. H. Auden, ‘The Watchers’ (1932)
 

However we define its borders, art has become a place for doing and making things that aren’t always possible in other fields. Film, theatre, music, poetry, academic research and political activism have found their way into contemporary art. The field has reconfigured itself beyond narrow art historical canons and shed many of the values that underpin traditional hermeneutic and critical models.

What does this mean for criticism, teaching, curating and making art? Seen positively, multidisciplinarity is evidence of contemporary art’s capaciousness, inclusiveness and variety. Yet increasingly, contemporary art is derided as a site of disciplinary impingement, capitalist or neoliberal subsumption, cultural appropriation and even political transgression. What are art’s limits and who draws that line? In his talk, Larios will discuss recent encounters between contemporary art and poetry, tech and activism.

Pablo Larios is a writer and associate editor of frieze magazine based in Berlin.
