What’s Wrong with Rights?

As contentious debates surrounding political correctness, freedom of expression, and identity politics have come to dominate national discourse—conversations foregrounded by extreme acts of violence and hate speech—negotiating the paradoxical perils of rights comes with new urgency. In conjunction with “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon,” the New Museum will host a panel discussion in which participants consider the current state and stakes of expression and freedom as they intersect with power structures tied to race, class, gender, sexuality, and disability. Conversations will range from trigger warnings and safe spaces on college campuses to the pitfalls of neoliberal campaigns for legal reforms around marginalized communities.

Tickets for this event will be made available shortly.
