Art Turning Left examines how the making and the reception of art have been influenced by left-wing values, from the French Revolution to the present day. Taking inspiration from Walter Benjamin’s approach, the show does not focus on the political attitude or the work’s message, but rather on its position in the contemporary relations of production. Starting from key left-wing values such as collectivism, equality and the search for alternative economies, the show explores how artists have transformed the processes of art-making and the distribution of artworks in order to produce art politically.
