Eleanor Bauer talked about “the traumas and ruptures of the post-truth era that are exposing holes in the fabric of our co-constructed realities. Now we must exercise pluralism in thought, understanding and action. How can we create space for artistic, social and discursive practices that listen to the murmurings of the multitude and employ sensitivity towards today's complexities and chaos? Let’s unfold art in the age of populism in relation to the divide between rationality and emotionality in public discourse.”
