Oliver Marchart traces in his book “Conflictual Aesthetics. Artistic Activism and the Public Sphere” (2019) trajectories of artistic activism in theater, dance, performance, and public art, investigating the political potential of cultural production. At the Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, Marchart presented the publication in conversation with Ameli Klein, further unpacking the activistic potential of artistic practice within the context of current political events.
