A Fiesta of Tough Choices: Contemporary Art in the Wake of Cultural Policies
Out of Print

A Fiesta of Tough Choices is published in collaboration with the international studio program in Sweden (IASPIS).
The publication expands on the festival-inspired exhibition and two seminars held at IASPIS, on the occation of the
Swedish government’s declaration of 2006:Year of Cultura Diversity. The publication not only documents, but takes the discussion from this seminar a step further with new texts
and art projects.Multiculturalism is a little too easy to dismiss. In political
terms for the Right, it poses a threat to traditions and antinational identity. For the Left, it often means food festivals,
postmarxist culturalism or reactionary community spokesmen As with discussions of globalization, perhaps the crux of the problem lies in the tools at our disposal. The critica terminology is akward or embarrassing at best, dangerous at worse. At the very least, a more exact language might help
define the terms of engagement more precisely. Following the Swedish government’s declaration of 2006: Year of Cultural Diversity, we looked to artists and theorists with a capacity
for reassessing standard cultural terminologies and revisiting
their critical potential.
