Polyphonic's Forum 2

Public Image Ltd


Exploring the interface between contemporary art and the mainstream media, this forum will unpack the practices of artists who engage with and manipulate media outlets and processes. What is the relationship between reality and fiction, information and manipulation, the artificial and authentic in this media-saturated world? With more and more artists adopting the mass media and online media’s language as their own, where is the line between critique and complicity? What are the benefits and drawbacks of working within this context, and how can artists influence media culture, deconstruct media myths and liberate audiences’ habitual patterns of consumption from within?
