CURATING EXCHANGE 4: Artistic Labor between the Resistance and the Precariat
Symposium | Curating Exchange 4 | presentations by Albert Heta and Anders Kreuger | organized by press to exit project space | Gem Klub and Institute for Social Sciences and Humanities – Skopje | 3th and 7th of November 2015, 19.30 h.
The program of the International Symposium “Curatorial exchanges 4” reflects on the questions related with the concept of the welfare state, the ways in which it corresponds with the precarious socially critical discourse and its manifestations in today’s cultural context. It also raises topics of relevance to the current situation in the world, such as the communication between citizens of different socio-economic status, the social implications of artificial intelligence, the changing status of labor, the rise of the European far-right, the plight of refugees from the civil war in Syria, or a possible shift to a non-monetary economy.
The program includes lectures by Albert Heta, artist, designer, social critic and the head curator of Stacion – Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina, and Anders Kreuger, curator at M HKA, the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp, and one of the editors of the London-based art journal Afterall.
