The Joy of Subversion: Conversation hosted by Alexa Wilson

The Joy Of Subversion: Conversation Hosted By Alexa Wilson, delved into the often overlooked aspects of performance art such as joy, play, pleasure, and subversion, particularly in the context of contemporary digital times and prevailing political unrest. The event was a blend of directed and spontaneous dialogue, functioning as a question-and-answer game that welcomed participation from both artists and non-artists.

In this interactive session, attendees engaged in a conversation relay game, an inventive format that allowed for a playful yet intimate exploration of topics. The discussion focused on understanding and sharing experiences related to the role of playfulness, pleasure, subversion, satire, and joy within the realm of performance art. This engaging format fostered a collective comprehension of these lighter, yet politically potent elements in art, offering a fresh perspective on the diverse capabilities of performance art as a medium.
