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?
The event will be formatted around key terms and struggles, inviting past and present participants from the UK and Yugoslav contexts to discuss strategies and futures for their work in and across both contexts.,
Travel bursaries available for current students involved in art schools. Please write to email@example.com with your interest in attending.
