Governing with Populists

.

As the presence of nationalistic and populist leaders surge, it’s probable, with our so-called democratic systems and subsidy schemes, that these figures will feature on the boards of our organisations and institutions. The future of our “democratic” systems is, therefore, unpredictable and fragile. It’s time to reconsider our position as so-called critical, engaged and independent arts professionals. Is it possible to counter or reject a populist approach to the arts? Or should the term be reclaimed? Is there a healthy way to filter populism into our artistic practices?

In Hungary and the region individuals and institutions experience shrinking space for democracy, media freedom etc. A short summary about how civil society fights back was published during the mass demonstrations in Budapest this Spring:
