About the Creative Time Summit

Artists have always raised their voices to speak truth to power, and have never been more important than at this moment in history, when social movements are erupting around the world. At Creative Time, we believe that artists are truly change agents, with the ability to affect society for the better.

Each year, the Creative Time Summit explores the many ways in which artists are tackling the world’s most challenging social and political issues. Innovative artists, activists, writers, and curators take the Summit stage to present bold new strategies for social change to a global audience. Since its inception six years ago, the Summit has seen hundreds of luminaries–from famed philosopher Slavoj Žižek, to legendary art critic Lucy Lippard, artist Rick Lowe, and Academy Award nominated filmmaker Laura Poitras, to name only a few–present their unflinching visions to thousands live in the theatre and online. In 2014, Creative Time takes on a major international partnership with the Public Art Agency Sweden, which will co-host the Summit at the Kulturhuset in Stockholm this November.

SECTION 4: ART IN THE AGE OF SURVEILLANCE
If the 1990s was the age of surveillance, then the current period has compounded this troubling sense of being watched. The recent revelations of NSA surveillance are exacerbated by the fact that self-surveilling has become the common language of contemporary life. As the private and public become deeply intertwined, their political and personal implications are increasingly conflated.
PANELISTS: Birgitta Jónsdóttir (moderator); Jill Magid; Metahaven; Tomáš Rafa; Dora Garcia; Natalya Eryomenko; Vera Ermolaeva Foundation of Contemporary Feminist Art Initiatives

4PM
LOCAL ENGAGEMENT
LIVING WALLS BEHIND THE WALLS RESOURCE ROOM PROJECT DISCUSSION WITH MONICA COMPANA AND CHRISTOPHER DEREK BRUNO

4:20PM
SECTION 5: MIGRATIONS
Migrants are individuals caught between the boundaries of nation-states and the reality of international economics. These conditions place them paradoxically at the center of global politics and yet still at the periphery of international human rights. How are artists navigating and producing works at the heart of this paradox?
PANELISTS: Soraya Post (moderator); Christopher Robbins and John Ewing; Ghana ThinkTank; Olga Jitlina and Andrey Yakimov, The Amanda Weil Award Lecture; Tone Olaf Nielsen; Favianna Rodriguez; Ahmet Ögüt; Tania Bruguera
