Open Call – Summer School: Our Many Easts

Our Many Easts summer school takes place in Ljubljana 24–30 August and the application deadline is 15 March. Courses will be held in English and cover topics such as the legacy of the Eastern European avant-gardes, archives as tools of emancipation, the new “non-aligned” networks, art in times of conflict and war, ecology and the environment.

Our Many Easts is organised by Moderna galerija in partnership with ZRC SAZU (the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts), as part of the L’Internationale project Museum of the Commons. It will focus on themes related to Eastern Europe, with a special emphasis on the expanded notion and understanding of the East, its arts, artists, art collectives, and the social and political contexts that have defined the geopolitical-social-cultural East(s) over the last decade. What is left of the idea of Eastern Europe today? What tools can historical experiences, genealogies of knowledge, artistic practices from the East(s) provide us with in our present, bereft of future?

The summer school is aimed at postgraduate students and art professionals interested in the focal topics, and will offer courses on the interpretation and presentation of selected topics in the formats of workshops, lectures, performances, guided tours, and discussions.
