What happens when artists and anthropologists are asked to do something together rather than talk from the safety of their own practice? The result can be seen on the website Connecting Art & Anthropology: Transcripts of discussions, short reports, a video and even a sound notebook based on the workshop! Read also Anne Galloway’s comments on this website/workshop.
Last year we had a similar event in Oslo, see Cosmoculture: Preferably more art than books!. Thomas Hylland Eriksen said: “The most important thing the Palestinian intellectual Edward Said did was to establish a Jewish-Arabic youth orchestra. This was more important than writing 100 books.”
