Conceivably, our times are in the throes of what the philosopher and cultural critic Walter Benjamin has referred to as a “state of emergency.” Thus, what are the critical imperatives today, in an age of post-truth politics that has allegedly arrived? As we take stock of the diversity and vibrancy of the panelists’ artistic practices that speak to and about the world, not just the art world, we will engage discussion on the status of the ‘real’ in the presented works, and on their approach to the sound-image, which is both implicit in, and critical of, shifting notions of truth.
