Can art really make a difference?

Thursday, 5 April 2018 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

That's the question Joanna Mendelssohn, former art critic and curator, asks as she contemplates Ai Weiwei's installation 'The Law of the Journey', a work that echoes and underscores the on-going global plight of refugees. This week on Communication Mixdown we follow Joanna as she traces the history of how some art forms and practices communicate with and about times of crisis and upheaval.

Thursday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
