To mark the publication of his book, Art Activism for an Anti-Colonial Future (SUNY Press), Carlos Garrido Castellano sat down with Helen Carey, director of Fire Station Artists’ Studios in Dublin, to explore some of its themes. Among the topics they reflected upon were the dilemmas associated with the mainstreaming of socially engaged art, socially engaged art as a global phenomenon with different genealogies that defy measurement or easy categorization, the potential for art to be both controlling and transformative, and most of all, the need to understand arts activism as a practice that has long been embedded within anti-colonial praxis.
