<nettime-ann> SOCIALEAST SEMINAR ON ART AND MEMORY (Zagreb 21 April 2007)


Mimara Museum Zagreb, Saturday 21 April 2007

The SocialEast research forum considers the art and visual culture of Eastern Europe through collaborative projects, exhibitions and seminars. The goal of SocialEast is to encourage comparative research into the art history of the countries of Eastern and Central Europe, as well as consider wider issues in socialist visual culture and beyond. The fourth seminar focuses on the role of artists in excavating memories of the socialist period. It considers the role of artists, curators and researchers in analysing and processing public memories and consciousness, as well as the role of visual representations in our understanding and recoding of Eastern Europe?s socialist past.
