Weisman Art Museum is partnering with the TOK collective (Russia/Israel/Netherlands) to present an online debate about elections as a platform for representation of the people's will. You're invited to join an international group of speakers who, while observing the U.S. elections live, discuss alternatives to current voting procedures. The conversation will also reflect on the manipulation and suppression of voters and election processes around the world—a topic pertinent to the current U.S. social and political environment, as well as recent election cycles in Russia, Belarus, Israel, and others.
