SIGNS OF BAD WEATHER: RASHEED ARAEEN AND POST-1968 POLITICAL ART IN
BRITAIN

In the summer of 1977, British-Pakastani artist Rasheen Araeen, against
the backdrop of Britain's decade-long civic turmoil, engaged in a new
project that brought together his former minimalist sculpture practice
with the burgeoning medium of live art. This lecture will situate
Araeen's performance as an outgrowth of his conception of and problems
with modernism, as well as one example of the engagement of art and
radical politics in Britain after 1968.
