Criticism in Society

Criticism in Society

June 15, 14:00-18:00. Free Entry!

Humanities Theatre, English Park Campus, Uppsala University.

What is arts criticism for, and what value does it hold for culture and society more widely? Can criticism be right or wrong or is it just a matter of opinion? What do should art critics do, and are they doing it ? 

Come to Uppsala University's Humanities Theatre to listen and take part when journalists, academics and arts professionals discuss and debate the idea and practice of art criticism and its place in contemporary society.
