After the Fact is the follow-up to the conversations sparked by the After The Fact symposium organized by the ICP-Bard MFA Class of 2016. It explores how we process personal and political information, how we view and contextualize art, and how both fact and fiction inform our everyday realities and our senses of self. It examines the place and potential of The Event—natural disasters, encounters with works of art, acts of political resistance, the genesis of authentic love— all points of no return. What happens when we feel, live, and experience the intensities that emerge, as if out of nowhere, as miraculous forces? How do we relate to contingencies, which change the way we perceive our selves and engage in our world?
