Artist and theorist Zoran Poposki will be speaking on critical artist interventions in public space at the international conference on Cultural Space and Identity in a Post-Socialist Context at the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television, University of Ljubljana in Slovenia, on 8-10 September 2010.
The interdisciplinary conference Cultural Space and Identity in a Post-Socialist Context inquires about the impact of social changes in post-socialist societies since the 1980s on theatre, cinema, contemporary art and new media. In particular, the conference seeks to explore such questions as: How have cultural space, identity and national iconography been reconfigured in post-socialist societies? What common patterns of change, if any, can be identified in post-socialist theatre and/or contemporary art and new media? How is cultural memory being performed in post-socialist societies? What are the implications of globalization and international (global) markets for contemporary art, theatre, etc., in post-socialist societies?
The conference is organized in conjunction with STEP - Project on European Theatre Systems.
