- ART ROOM
In 2009, the Intermittent University organized an open discussion with distinguished Professor Irit Rogoff (Visual Cultures / Goldsmiths, University of London). Taking the so-called ‘educational turns’ as starting point, in this talk Professor Rogoff debated the participatory role of emergent publics within the museum and debated the way in which cognitive capitalism has challenged critical theory on the one hand and the rebilding of academic knowledge on the other.
