Signal is an idea in motion.
The production of art and culture does not happen in a vacuum; it is not a neutral process. We don’t ask the question of whether art should be instrumentalized toward political goals; the economic and social conditions we exist under attempt to marshal all material culture toward the patience of the way things are. Yet we also understand that cultural production can challenge capitalism, statecraft, patriarchy, and all the systems used to produce the profound inequalities in our world. With Signal, we aspire to explore the complex ways that socially engaged cultural production affects us, our communities, our struggles, and our globe.
