Political activism in the arts - when do we want it? Now!

Political activism in the arts - when do we want it? Now!

Visual artist Badiucao speaks out on the power paste-up activism in the face of China’s censorship of his art. Hear about how he makes the streets of Hong Kong his gallery, and creating art in the face of fear and oppression. For the Nudge, we went along to the climate change rally at the State Library of Victoria to find out how artists can be politically active and effective. We spoke to Jessie Ngaio, Lyndal Jones, Neil Pharaoh and Jeff Sparrow protesting and art’s ability to change our world. Plus a monthly round up of what’s happening in the arts. Our theme music is ‘Chasing Waterfalls’ by Tim Shiel.
