Is ‘identity politics’ still relevant or necessary in art? We wanted to see how and why artists today address issues of identification and subjectivity in their work. We’ve focused specifically on emergent practices, because we think they might help us, and our audience, to understand the here-and-now of art and to speculate on its future.
The catalogue of the exhibition, The Welfare State exhibited at MuHKA. The welfare state has, generally speaking, become synonymous with the synthesis of a market economy and active government that characterises both ‘Western’ and ’emergent’ societies today. Yet there is little agreement among the many who operate and observe public social policy – politicians, civil servants, trade union leaders, social scientists, journalists, the public at large – about how the welfare state could or should be defined in more precise terms.
