Hanan Toukan to be featured speaker at roundtable hosted by the EUME
From the blurb: This conversation invites a reflection on artistic and cultural practices in formal and non-formal spaces in and between four distinct urban locations that nonetheless share fundamental similarities: Hayfa, Beirut, Amman and Berlin. This reflection provides an opportunity to think about the ways in which the multitudes of cultural and knowledge producers at work in the gig economy today respond to neoliberal capitalism’s precarious policies towards cultural labor. Thinking about the conditions of possibility of alternatives ways of organizing within this framework the panel ask several questions: What drives the creative class today? What structural challenges does it face and what shapes the varied forms of its production? And what role does urban context, generation, class and gender play in shaping the subjectivities and conversations this class of creatives generate, beyond issues of the politics of representation?
