Rage against the machine: a symposium on artists as activists

'Rage against the machine' departs from the 40th anniversary of Charter 77 – an open letter from key signatories from the cultural sphere, which criticized the then communist government of Czechoslovakia for failing to recognise basic human rights. In 1977, dissident writer Václav Havel and several others were arrested, imprisoned or forced into exile for signing the letter. In 2017 the majority of Europe is free of such open repression, despite the rise of nationalism and xenophobia in European politics. 'Rage against the machine' explores how cultural producers respond to the more insidious demands of today's political economy. Must artists as activists go beyond expressing the inequalities in today's world or is this cry of anguish an end in itself?
