Complete information about this year's Creative Time Summit in Washington, DC, is at the link below.
This afternoon will include:
SECTION 2: DO IT YOURSELF (screening of live-stream noon-1:30pm)
As this Summit finds itself in the birthplace of DC hardcore — a punk movement of the early 1980s with a DIY ethos — this section offers an opportunity to highlight cultural practices that produce their own economic reality.
SECTION 3: UNDER SIEGE (screening of live-stream 1:30-3pm)
In the last few years several international social movements have fought to bring inequities and systematic violence into the foreground of public discourse. Now, protest battle cries such as “I can’t breathe,” “Non, Merci,” and “Water is Life” have become part of our vernacular. This section invites artists and activists to discuss their work pertaining to communities facing immediate threat.
SECTION 1: OCCUPY POWER (screening of key talks from earlier in the day 3-4pm)
What would it mean for a grassroots social justice movement to actually take power? What would be required to turn resistance into revolution? Presenters in this section are reevaluating current political structures to produce radical alternatives and redistributions of power.

KEYNOTE Hans Ulrich Obrist with Eileen Myles: The Case for Nonsense
A century ago, at Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, Switzerland, a subversive anti-art movement was founded in response to the devastation of what would be World War I. Dadaism used the absurd and the irrational to critique the unreasonable politics of the time. Upon the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Dada, this series embraces the irrational as a productive political space.
Additional sections are being screened on Saturday, October 15, at the same time and location.
