Kristina Wong is a performance artist, comedian and elected representative whose work onstage and in politics is informed by an obsessive knowledge of the reality television format. How does reality tv explain where we are today? What tropes from this genre have now surfaced in how we think, make decisions and move in the world?

In this talk she will describe her research, brushes with reality television and how she’s played with the form in her activism and art for the benefit of social justice.
