Cripical Theory: 12 Aspects of Disability Art & Education Never Resolved
März 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmKostenlos
About this event
What is the problem with terms like ’non-disabled‘, ‚tragic‘, ‚brave‘, ‚heartwarming‘, ’normal‘, ‚people with disabilities‘ and others often used when addressing artificially constructed oppositions? This session serves as an introduction to disability theory and draws, among other things, on the artist’s own experiences of working conditions at Brookes.
Born in Derby, England, Aaron Williamson’s work is informed by his experience of becoming deaf and by a politicised, yet humorous sensibility towards disability. At a University of California San Diego lecture in 1998, Williamson coined the term ‘Deaf Gain’ as a counter-emphasis to ‘hearing loss’.
This session forms part of the Oxford Brookes University Festival: „Creative industries for a better society“
Following the success of our inaugural Creative Industries Festival in 2021, the Creative Industries Research and Innovation Network (CIRIN) at Oxford Brookes are returning with the 2nd International Creative Industries Festival on the theme of ‘Creative industries for a better society’. For two jam-packed weeks starting on March 21st, we feature talks, workshops and performances looking at the role of the creative industries in improving people’s daily lives.
All events take place online to enable international audiences and speakers to participate. We bring together industry figures, students, interested members of the public and our cutting edge researchers in order to imagine a better society with the creative industries at its centre and celebrate the role of universities as spaces of freedom of expression and creativity.
Like last year, we look for ways to build a more inclusive creative sector and celebrate a wide range of diverse creatives working in a vast array of creative fields. We celebrate art, museums, film, photography, music, media, celebrity culture, poetry, carnival, storytelling, immersive tech, AI, and look at creative approaches to tackling problems like climate change, inequality and discrimination.
