      Artists As Activists

      A Panel Discussion About Art, Culture And The Media
      In support of the art exhibit "Censored Stories"

      On Sunday, September 29, 2002 from 2 pm - 4 pm, the Avenue 50 Studio
      will host a panel discussion with artists, activists and journalists
      regarding the question of art and politics and their relationship to
      the media and advertising.

      Art was used in the service of the Third Reich to promote the ideas
      of the Hitler regime. "Art exercises unconsciously the greatest
      direct influence upon the masses." Adolf Hitler. Is art used as
      successfully today to advance the agendas of the government and of
      the counterculture? What is the role of the internet, websites and
      online magazines? What direction will political art take in the
      future?
