Conversations about Populism
Friday, May 14, 20216:00 am – 7:00 am EDT/GMT-4
12 pm Vienna l 6 am New York
OSUN and the Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory invite you to a panel discussion on Conversations about Populism. The discussion is inspired by the publication of two volumes edited by Professor Mirjana Nikolić and Professor Milena Dragićević Šešić from the University of Arts in Belgrade. Mediji, Kultura i Umetnost u Doba Populizma (published in 2018) focused on changes in politics, culture, and media in the era of populist politics and Situating Populist Politics: Arts and Media Nexus (published in 2019) dealt with art and media within cultural and public policies in response to populist and nationalist demands.
The discussion will cover the different ways that populist political communication is entering the public realm, but even more to what extent arts, culture, and media are influenced by political populism.
