How do visual art, music, theatre and literature approach different kinds of conflict?
What happens to artistic processes, art works and art institutions in high-conflict circumstances?
How can aesthetic experiences and aesthetic forms play a dynamic role in dealing with complex and potentially conflicting social conditions?
How does the art itself become an object of conflict, stir up conflict or even inflict conflict?
Can art play a vital role when consensus orientation becomes socially or politically unproductive?
How can artists and art educators create productive arenas for dissensus?
