A series of hyper-realist conferences blurring the border of political representation and representation in art – Neo-Craft engages and critiques the ‘right’ aesthetics of as a platform for public debate. The program consists of lectures, workshops, symposia and dialogues. All events sit on the edge of art. Participants have the opportunity to participate and discuss topics of the performance amongst one another, and with the public.
