Sam Durant, Martin Plot and Stephen Rohde

Sam Durant, Martin Plot and Stephen Rohde: War, Civil Liberties and the Arts


One week prior to the presidential election, artist and CalArts faculty member Sam Durant presents a short selection of anti-war films, followed by a discussion of art and civil liberties in an era of global fears. The dialogue is hosted by CalArts president Steven D. Lavine, and also includes Stephen Rohde, lawyer, writer and immediate past president of the Southern California branch of the ACLU, and Martin Plot, political and social theorist, and CalArts faculty member. Topics include the implications of recent Supreme Court decisions concerning prisoners held in relation to the war in Iraq and the strategies and responsibilities of artists in an age of growing anti-intellectualism.
