How is the centre defined? It exists as the seat of political and cultural power, positioning everything either within or without. Crucially, in Scotland, it is also the arbiter of success, the bar by which artistic excellence is judged. Using the theme of ‘dissensus’ (Ranciere, 2011) this talk seeks to explore whether the tension between the centre and the periphery can usefully help to provide insights into the current political and cultural moment, and inform Scotland’s arts policy moving forward.
