1968/1989, Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, June 2008, co-organised with Joanna Mytkowska. Publication forthcoming (Summer 2009). weblink
This conference aimed to investigate the relationship between political change and artistic innovation in Eastern Europe during two transformative moments of political upheaval. How did local political contexts give rise to specific artistic innovations? How does the overlap between political form and artistic form make itself visible? Is it true to assume that 1968 was more important for Western Europe, and 1989 for Eastern Europe, or can we nuance this claim?
