Speaking Truth | Media and Technology
Tega Brain & Morehshin Allahyari in conversation with Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman
Since its inception in 2009, the Creative Time Summit has functioned as a flexible, roving platform bringing together artists, activists, and other thought leaders engaging with today’s most pressing issues. As the Summit enters its tenth year, we are hoping you will join us and Creative Time as we engage with the central question:
CAN SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER UNRAVEL THE AGE OF DISILLUSION WE FIND OURSELVES IN?
New Lab is proud to be hosting the first event in the 2019 discussion series, with Tega Brain, Morehshin Allahyari and Amy Goodman discussing current practices and concerns with regards to the manipulation and dissemination of public information, and increasing attacks to freedom of expression.
