The complexities of complicity and responsibility in contexts of systemic oppression continue to confound our capacities of judgement and action. Situated at the intersection of several disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, this workshop explores political theory’s and art’s capacity to shed light on subtle practices of complicity and to unearth the however limited potential for resistance and solidarity.
