Cultural production today is dominated by images and sounds of the past. The panel asks: is nostalgia always necessarily conservative and retrogressive?  Or can it be harnessed as a progressive force?

Participants:
Owen Hatherley (writer, blogger and architectural critic)
Joanna Mytkowska (Director, Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw)
Matthew Brannon (artist)

Chair: Dan Fox (Senior Editor, frieze)
