Meeting hosted by The Cliché

Toxic masculinity, generation X, the angry black woman, or the super-rich who don´t pay taxes: Socio-political clichés threaten to limit human rights and freedom of speech as much as they trigger and frame necessary social debates. We build and consolidate these signifiers in different social spheres: In the news, on the street, and more increasingly as hashtags on social media.

The CCA working group “The Cliché” aims at scrutinizing the term from its roots in media archeology in order to open up the question how the arts subvert or solidify the social cliché. Join us and let´s discuss questions like: What is the relation between between image and text? In what ways do works of art interfere with the predictability of signifying chains proposed by clichés? How can the interplay of aesthetics and politics help to weigh the pros and cons of clichés in a globalized world?

Our first meeting takes place on Friday, Feb 5, 10:00 am on Zoom.
