A talk discussing artists, writers, filmmakers who have dared to tell the truth in especially turbulent times. Now more than ever as we are lied to, manipulated by propaganda, distracted by the over abundance of the latest techno-gadgets, inundated by pointless pop culture and forced into feelings of impotency as we become overwhelmed by the state of global collapse. Works and artists who seek to inspire individuals to come forward in artistic protest, lending a personal voice to history which illustrates the fear, rage and sorrow of the human condition in these trying times. 

Alex Brahim is independent theoretician and curator from Columbia. Lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.

O discutie despre artisti, scriitori, regizori care au indraznit sa spuna adevarul, in deosebi in timpuri agitate. In mod special acum, cand suntem mintiti, manipulati de propaganda, distrati de abundenta de gadget-uri, inundati de cultura pop lipsita de sens si fortati sa ne simtim impotenti in timp ce suntem coplesiti de starea de colaps global. Lucrari si artisti care inspira indivizii sa inainteze inspre arta ca mijloc de protest, isi ofera propria voce istoriei, ilustrand frica, furia si mahnirea specifice conditiei umane in aceste vremuri de incercare. 

Alex Brahim este un curator si teoretician independent din Columbia. Traieste si lucreaza in Barcelona.
