We suggest to organise a workshop looking at the role of the artist in society. The workshop links to a long tradition of discussions on ‘art and society’; art that, more generally, presents itself with direct relation to a possible collective future. One can think of Russian constructivism, or the literary avant-gardes of ‘May 4th‘ China. What does this mean today? Can art still play such a role? What is the relation between contemporary artists and the society they inhabit?
