Thinking Out Loud: Practices of Art in the Era of the Disenchanted

On 24 March 2015, BAK artistic director Maria Hlavajova presents a talk titled Thinking Out Loud: Practices of Art in the Era of the Disenchanted, in which she thinks through the research projects FORMER WEST and Future Vocabularies, to reflect on the question what the prospective itineraries might be through which we can point towards what we once used to call the “future”?

This lecture takes place in the context of the Curating Europe’s Futures series, “a collaboratively-organised discussion series which explores contemporary curatorial and artistic practices that have critically addressed themselves to the processes of socio-economic restructuring, identity politics, gender dynamics and cultural policies within ‘post-bloc’ Europe.”
