From Hito Steyrl's criticism of the Sackler family through the «Tear Gas Biennale» statement leading a board member to step back from the Whitney’s board, public outcries kept making headlines in the artworld in 2019.

At this Crit Cross we want to step back and reflect on what’s happening. What are the forms the critique takes? What are its reasons and effects? What’s its relationship to art as art? Are there more reasons to be critical now than before or are the critics more empowered?
