Rage, Resistance and a Rejection of Resignation
October 8 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm$10
Ireland has long had a tradition of rebellion, with resistance being a refusal to accept the condition we find ourselves in. Art can speak to power by subverting the rational and opening up new possibilities. Can writers and artists dream new worlds into existence that can stand against a monolithic globalized corporate consumer society? Emer Martin’s darkly comic work examines power and the abuse of it. Her characters have always been like the dogs howling at the edge of town. Emer reads from a selection of her work and opens up the conversation of what role artists can play in the new culture of rage and resistance in these darkly turbulent times.
