Subject:  CONF: Socialeast - Legacy of 1968 (Krakow, 26 Apr 08)

Forum on the Art and Visual Culture of Eastern Europe

A symposium on the legacy of 1968 for contemporary art in Eastern Europe
and beyond.

This seminar will examine the multiple legacies of 1968 for contemporary
art in terms of new artistic practices involving dematerialisation,
performance and the use of new media; social and institutional critique;
as well as the impact of political upheavals on art. It will also
consider the contemporary implications of the social movements and
artistic radicalism of 1968 against the backdrop of the organised
commemoration of the 40th anniversary, as well as the specificities of
the experience of 1968 in the countries of Eastern Europe.

The SocialEast Seminar on the Legacy of 1968 is co-organised with
Andrzej Szczerski of Jagiellonian University Krakow.
