Event description

Description

This free public seminar about changing society will be presented by Hörður Torfason, a Icelandic artist and activist.

Hörður Torfason maintains the role of the artist is to criticise, that criticism is a form of love: “We have to use reason, cultural roots, feelings and the precious gifts of life – our creativity, to ensure human rights aren’t undermined by economic growth and politics. It’s about learning every week, every day, new sides of corruption”, he says. “Inequality won’t be removed by conventional systems: “If you want to move a graveyard, don’t expect the inhabitants to help you.” A musician, actor and ”artivist”, Hörður was the founder, thinker, developer and spokesman for the organisation Raddir fólksins (“People’s voices”) in 2008 following the 2008 Icelandic financial crises. As a thinker in the Cutlery revolution and a human-rights campaigner, he has travelled widely around the world and lectured about his methods.
