Fri 4 March 2016, 13:00 – 18:00 GMT
An event bringing together researchers and participants from the student art centres in Yugoslavia with those involved in art school occupations in the UK past and present.
Student Art Centres in Yugoslavia were important meeting points between artists and broader social and political issues and hosted left critique of the official culture in Yugoslavia and joined neo-Marxist, post ‘68 critique of culture, including that of the emerging ‘red bourgeoisie’. What tendencies were shared between student art centres and their counter-parts in art school activism and occupations in the UK? And, how do current art students and work in solidarity with other groups to fight the neoliberalisation of the arts and broader society today?
In collaboration with Politicised Practice Research Group and Anarchist Research Group, Loughborough University.
