Ioannis (John) Bardakos
This panel introduces research that challenges, exposes and critiques dominant socio, political and economic systems through playful processes. As the dominant representational traditions of the global north continue to frame people, environments and cultures, this panel offers a timely opportunity to reveal acts of artistic research that ‘upend’ the imaginary of a common socio/technical system, and recast it through practice research.
KEYWORDS: art, play, systems, ecologies of art, cross-cultural discourse
