This audiovisual recording from March 30, 2005 as part of the 36th annual UND Writers Conference: “Hope/Illusion” features Carolyn Forché, Jane Urquhart, Luis Camnitzer, and Virginia Martinez forming the panel “The Politics of Illusion.” The panel begins with a discussion of how politics enter writing with or without intention and how art enters the political sphere. Forché explains how she was shaped by experience with other political writers and her human rights work in El Salvador. The panel also discusses the political and activist responsibility of the artist and the empowering vision that the artist should pursue, as well as the repercussions of subversive political art.
Moderated by Laurel Reuter.
