Artistic Interventions II: “Artistic Interventions and Education as Critical Practice” (Salzburg, April 4th and 5th, 2014)

Teaser Image: 

As continuation of the symposium series “Artistic Interventions. Collaborative and self-organized practices. With a focus on anti-racist and feminist perspectives” held in autumn 2013, we are organizing for the current semester, a symposium on “Artistic Interventions and Education as Critical Practice – (Un)learning processes, community engagement, and solidarity” scheduled for April 2014.

This symposium’s presentations and two workshops—with Janna Graham/Centre for Possible Studies, Nicolas Vass/ Precarious Workers Brigade, and Annette Krauss/Read-in—will explore the ways that artistic interventions can create open and shared collaborative and informal learning spaces for empowerment and agency in educational contexts, and in exchange and solidarity with social movements.

INQUEERSECTIONS - Exploring queer activism across different contexts (14-16 February 2014, Utrecht, NL)

Location

Utrecht
Netherlands

This three-day festival invites to explore different queer activist struggles and strategies, and to think about what kind of alliances can be built around them. The festival is based on an idea that queer struggles and experiences always have to be seen not only as related to sexuality, oppression based on sexual orientation and gender, but also to other categories, such as race, class, ethnic background etc. that affect queer lives. In their own turn, these categories mark the lives of people that do not necessarily identify as or affiliate with the notion of queerness.

Grassroots feminist show VIOLET: Disability and art in Eastern Europe

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sqJRheg4Zw

The latest episode of VIOLET is with the artist Gabrielė Gervickaitė, currently based in Vilnius. Gabrielė is well-known in Lithuania for careful juxtaposition of medical and industrial materials in her work. Her collages make limbs in orthopaedic devices look like radio towers and by using electrical tape she constructs androgynous torsos. Such strategies have established Gabrielė as one of the most interesting artists of her generation in Lithuania. More on Gabrielė - http://gabrielegervickaite.com/
