Faculty and alumna Victoria Hindley was recently commissioned by Afterimage, The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism, New York, to cover FROM BEYOND THE FORMER WEST, the
3rd Former West Research Congress held in Vienna.
From her essay: “In the context of a search beyond the confines of traditionally conceived contemporary art, how does difference actually unfold?…Most politically engaged artists and cultural workers active in the last two decades practice strategic interventions in the hegemonic order. They subvert, interlope, reinterpret, displace; they understand the liberating quality of the deconstructive move.”
