tranzit .hu launches a series of talks in its new space, KIRALY102. By creating a dialogue between the representatives of different countries, disciplines and generations, we wish to realize a community space where curatorial and artistic thinking can serve the discussion of current public issues and the articulation of community-forming statements.
The theme of the first year – developed in collaboration with the College of Social Theory (TEK, Corvinus University of Budapest) – is the political transition of ’89, the role of intellectuals and artistic thinking in the dissident or alternative social movements from the crisis perspective of the 2010s.The framework of this programme is a long-term international collaboration that intends to explore interconnections between the post-communist and post-colonial discourses.
During the first talk, on the basis of viewing documents together, the crisis of the intellectual and dissident roles and the opportunities of educational and critical initiatives organized from below before and after the regime change will be discussed.
