Documentation of the March 27, 1988 panel "Contentious Art: Strategies and Practice," as part of the "Reactions to Reactionary Culture" symposium. <br>This panel titled " Contentious Art: Strategies and Practice" includes speakers Diane Neumaier, photography faculty at Rutgers University and co-editor of Cultures in Contention; Avram Finkelstein, New York member of ACT UP; artist Tim Rollins of Kids of Survival; and Catherine Saalfield, from the Modern Culture and Media Center at Brown University and member of Paper Tiger Television. The panel explores culture in the midst of (and perhaps in response to) postmodernism, wherein there seems to be a re-emergence of activity by people who have integrated certain social realities into their work, so that the work itself becomes a means of acting on these realities. It examines these issues through presentation as well as informed discussion between panelists and the audience. <br>This panel was a part of the "Reactions to Reactionary Culture" symposium, held March 25-27, 1988.

Documentation of the panel "Postmodernism: Culture and Politics," held on March 27th, 1988 as part of the symposium "Reactions to Reactionary Culture." <br>In "Postmodernism: Culture and Politics," Todd Gitlin presents a paper on the topic of postmodernism and its roots in culture and politics from the 60s through the present. If there is to be more at stake in the debates surrounding postmodernism than style, Gitlin suggests that they may be "in no small part discussions about how to live, feel, think in a specific world, our own: a world in nuclear jeopardy; a world economically both alluring and nerve-racking for the fitful middle classes; a world two decades from hopes and desperate innocence of the 60s; a world unimpressed by the affirmative futurology of Marxism."
