The talk, titled "Abuse of Power should come as no surprise (Jenny Holtzer, 1980)", will explore the politics of power within the art world, discussing the impacts of the #metoo movement on the creative industries where the perception of the workplace environment is often less well defined, and how artists and art workers negotiate, reference and give voice to dissent in the face of power and its abuse.
