The international conference on EXILE examines the problematic of contemporary global/European mobility (global/European citizenship). The development of contemporary art is understood as a simultaneous process which is part of contemporary global geopolitical change. This interdisciplinary conference connects authors representing their specializations in different geopolitical environments. The organisers approach this subject from the perspective of visual art’s openness to new positions, interpretations, research, engagement and critique.The conference is structured into blocks of presentations facilitating a deeper focus into social movements such as integration, (cultural) assimilation and dominance.
Presentations by: Giles Ji Ungpakorn (Oxford, political scientist and political activist); Zdeněk Uherek (Prague, ethnologist, social anthropologist); Stefan Tiron (Bucharest, art critic); Lars O Ericsson (Stockholm, art critic, philosopher and writer); Dror Feiler (Stockholm, artist, composer and activist); Avdej Ter-Oganjan (Prague, artist) and Adriana Kiss (Aberystwyth, art historian).
Organized by: Milan Mikuláštík, Alexander Peroutka a František Zachoval
