Criticizing the other – Artistic Judgment in a Hyperdiverse Society

12 December 2023 – Reflection afternoon with sociologist Pascal Gielen (ARIA)

Organised by Barbara T’Jonck, Renata Epifanio Lamenza & Pascal Gielen

Today, the assessment of artistic quality often occurs from a Eurocentric perspective. In critiques, programming, teaching, and rehearsal processes, we are exploring new possibilities to evaluate each other and interact in a diverse world. This afternoon of conversation welcomes teachers, students, performers, critics, and programmers from different generations and cultural backgrounds in the performing arts world to engage in a thoughtful dialogue.
