Can art push the boundaries of the socially and culturally acceptable, or does the controlled environment of the liberal institution nullify transgression?

Four fortnightly sessions use Madani’s work as a springboard to explore themes including role of humour, irony and parody in aesthetic critique, the limits of offensive art as a challenge to political correctness, and the gendered and racialised nature of dominant representations of what counts as “disgusting.” The atmosphere will be friendly and open, all are welcome and sessions are free, but booking is required. Led by Tracey Potts & Colin Wright (Centre for Critical Theory, University of Nottingham).
